Richland County is accepting applications for funding from the Community Development Block Grant program.

The county is getting $169,000 this year, down from $192,000 last year.

Regional Planning Commission Director Matthew Huffman says projects must meet any of the objectives of benefitting low and moderate income people, preventing or eliminating slums and blight, addressing community development needs.

The Block Grant program defines low and moderate income as including abused children, battered spouses, the elderly, homeless, and illiterate, and people with AIDS. 

An applicant workshop is set for May third at nine am at the Regional Planning Commission office in the Community Services building on North Park Street in Mansfield.

Applications are due by May 24th.
