City’s Community Resources Division to Hold CDBG Photo Reception
In Conjunction with National Community Development Week
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The City of Fayetteville’s Community Resources Division will be holding a “CDBG Photo Reception” in conjunction with National Community Development Week. The event will be held at the Fayetteville Senior Activity and Wellness Center (945 S College Ave, Fayetteville, AR 72701) tomorrow, April 19 from 2 – 4 p.m. and will highlight the variety of programs funded by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program including Housing Rehabilitation and Repair, Transportation Assistance, the Hearth Program, and more. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
For over 40 years, the City of Fayetteville has been providing much-needed services to low-to-moderate income residents of Fayetteville. The photo reception will feature a meet-and-greet with the Community Resources Division’s staff, and those who attend will have the opportunity to receive information and resources to become effective advocates for continued CDBG funding. CDBG serves as the cornerstone of the federal government’s commitment to collaborating with state and local governments to strengthen communities like Fayetteville, improving the quality of life for those in need.
