The City of Covington invites the public to City Hall Thursday evening to weigh in on the expenditure of federal dollars used for city projects and improvements over the next five years. Starting at 6:00 p.m., a short presentation will be given on the basics f the funding and the public comments begin.
The City of Covington is, according to Housing and Urban Development Department (HUD) terminology, an "entitlement city", meaning that it receives both Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds and HOME Investment Partnership Funds from HUD. One requirement of administering these funds is to assess community needs and develop place-based market-driven strategies to meet those needs in the form of a Consolidated Plan.
The purpose of the upcoming meeting is to engage with the community and gather feedback that will ultimately influence the City's expenditure of these funds, according to a news release.
