Salt Lake City’s Housing and Neighborhood Development Division is hosting an open house at the Sorenson Unity Center to showcase this year’s applicants for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs.
Residents are invited to participate in the Open House and learn about different programs in the community. Representatives from organizations that applied for these grants will be in attendance to answer questions about their programs and the services they provide.
Individuals will have an opportunity to vote for the programs they believe should be prioritized for funding and these votes will be passed on to the Community Development and Capital Improvement Program (CDCIP) advisory board, the Mayor and City Council to inform them of public will regarding CDBG and ESG funds.
