Community Development Week Celebration - April 11th

Montgomery County, the City of Dayton, the City of Kettering, Clark County, Greene County, the City of Springfield, the City of Fairborn, City of Xenia, CountyCorp and Citywide Development will join together on Wednesday, April 11, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. for a celebration of Community Development Week.  The event will take place at Schindler Banquet Center, 1182 Tyndale Lane, Xenia OH 45385.  Greene County is the host this year.

This year’s theme is “Community Development ‘Works’.”  There will be a running video of projects, either in progress or completed, by participating agencies and nonprofits.  There is a ceremonial check presented to each jurisdiction, which includes their Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME, Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) allocations for that year, as well as other federal funds from HUD, such as Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). 

Enacted into law in 1974, CDBG is the principal federal program providing grants to states, cities and towns to devise neighborhood approaches that will improve physical, economic and social conditions in communities. It is administered nationally by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Highlights:        

James Kent – Dayton Works Plus, a collaborative effort to deconstruct homes while teaching construction trades at the same time. Representatives from Congressman Turner’s office and Congressman Austria’s office will be present as will other local elected officials.
