The Wayne County Redevelopment Authority appproved projects in eight boroughs and townships in Wayne County which will receive Community Development Block Grant funding.

Of the 14 projects which requested money, 11 were approved. Wayne County Commissioners, Pleasant Mount Communication Center and Habitat for Humanity were the only requests approved which were not township or borough governments.

The total amount of grant funding requested was $352,055, but the Wayne Redevelopment Authority, which evaluates each project, rejected three projects. The total amount awarded was $311,845. After $56,132 in administrative costs, the net total to be used for projects is $255,713.

CDBG grant funding is appropriated through the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Each single request for funds must benefit a segment of the population where 51 percent of the population is of moderate to low income.
