Pulaski County applied to the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs for a grant from the State Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) COVID-19 Response Program. This program is funded by Title I of the federal Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. These funds were used for an economic development project which included the following activities: providing grants to businesses to retain low-to-moderate jobs by granting working capital to continue operations. The amount of CDBG funds proposed to be used for activities that will benefit low and moderate-income persons is $225,000. The total amount of CDBG funds utilized was $250,000.
