Calaveras Supes Hold Block Grant Hearing

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — Kicking off the opening of the Community Development Block Grant cycle, the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors held preliminary hearings Tuesday.

The board heard from various community groups including Habitat For Humanity and Mother Lode Job Training, wishing to be included in this round of funding.

The Community Development Block Grant encompasses a variety of programs for community development activities. It´s a federal program administered by the state.

The county will now work with those groups and others to clearly define which grants it will apply for.

At a later date the board will hold a separate public hearing to discuss and approve specific applications.
