Lower Merion Township is preparing its annual Action Plan for fund year 2013-2014, with applications available for funding through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds allocated to the Township.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), through its CDBG Program, provides funding for a variety of activities that create viable urban neighborhoods, decent housing, suitable living environments and economic opportunities—principally for low- and moderate-income residents of the Township. These activities include:

  • Rehabilitation of owner-occupied homes

  • Affordable housing activities

  • Rehabilitation of community facilities

  • Public service activities

  • Curbing and sidewalk improvements

  • Removal of architectural barriers

  • Historic preservation

  • Planning studies

In order to be considered for funding, a project must accomplish one or more of the CDBG National Objectives and be eligible for funding as set forth in federal regulations.

Local non-profit and governmental agencies may apply to the Township for funding. Anyone interested in receiving an application should contact Kathryn Morris at the Community Development Division of the Lower Merion Building & Planning Department, at (610) 645-6271. The deadline for application submission is Friday, February 15, 2013 at 4:00 PM.

Public hearings on the CDBG program funding allocations will occur on Wednesday, February 13th, 2013 and Wednesday, April 10th, 2013 in the Township’s Board Room, starting at approximately 6 PM.
