The budget has been set for a Neighborhood Revitalization Grant application for a project in southern Masury.
“We have all the parts and pieces,” Trumbull County Grants Manager Julie Green said May 30. “I’m just refining the narrative.”
The deadline to apply for the competitive grant is June 14. The Ohio Development Services Agency, which administers the money for the federal government, will decide whether to award the grant.
The county is asking for $750,000 from the Community Development Grant program, and is pledging another $75,000. The area qualifies for the money because of the prevalence of low- and moderate-income households.
The budget breaks down this way:
Street improvements, $335,000.
Sidewalk improvements, $150,000.
Development of a small park, $30,000.
Drainage improvements for flood control, $300,000.
Administration, $10,000.
The projects were developed through community meetings in which residents and township and county officials discussed the needs of the neighborhood.
