Block Grants Being Wiped Out?

The president’s plans to trim the national budget include drastically reducing the money set aside generally for block grants.

This would be a disaster for many cities and especially for Everett.

Monday evening February 22, the Mayor’s Office of Community Development is holding a public meeting regarding FY 2010 Community Development Block Grant Projects.

The details include about 12 projects of great public interest and concern.

It is impossible to think that all of this might be wiped out in the coming years.

But that is the way it looks.
