Block grant funds available in Manchester

By: Bonnie Krueger

A public hearing was held on June 18 prior to the regular Board of Aldermen meeting in Manchester to approve the city’s acceptance of its 32nd annual St. Louis County Community Development Block grant.

The federal grant money in the amount of $24,300 is offered to county residents as of Jan. 1, 2019, who need structural home repairs and meet financial criteria. In order to qualify for a sum not to exceed $5,000, residents must live in their homes for five years after receiving the grant, or else the loan must be repaid. This is also a once in a lifetime participation program.

To apply or for more information, residents must visit the community development block grant page on the county’s website at stlouisco.com.
