The Town annually receives federal Community Development Block Grant funding to address certain needs within Castle Rock.
Community input guides the Town’s use of this funding. To date, the grant has been used to help support seniors living within Castle Rock and to make accessibility improvements at Town facilities. In 2021, the resources made available for the CDBG program were $230,932.
The public is invited to attend an open house to view a presentation on the accomplishments and expenditures for the Town’s CDGB program during the 2021 program year. The public is encouraged to comment on the report after the presentation. This is an in-person and virtual event, from 6-7 p.m. Nov. 16 at Town Hall, 100 N. Wilcox St., Castle Rock.
A link to attend virtually is available on the Town’s website at CRgov.com/CDBG. The report can also be viewed on that webpage starting Nov. 16. Written comments are encouraged and can be mailed or delivered to the address above or via email to tkucewesky@CRgov.com through Dec. 5.
The open house is being held in advance of a public hearing on Dec. 6 to discuss accomplishments and expenditures of the Town’s CDBG program. The hearing will be held during the regular Town Council meeting at 6 p.m. in Town Hall’s Council Chambers.
Allowed uses for the funds within the Town’s Annual Action Plan include Americans with Disabilities Act improvements and services for seniors. Additional information about the program is on the CDBG webpage.
