The City is seeking input from potential stakeholders and the public on the needs of low-income citizens. These funds must be used for one of the following purposes:
1. To benefit low-to-moderate income persons;
or 2. To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight;
or 3. To meet other community development needs of a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community
