National Community Development Week!

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program will celebrate its 40th anniversary this year.  Since its inception in 1974, CDBG provided affordable and accessible housing, supported child care, health care, recreation, senior citizens programs, and helped finance infrastructure improvements and economic development activities.

From April 21st through April 26th, 2014 the City of Fall River will join communities across the nation in the annual celebration of the National Community Development Week.  The weeklong observance provides us with the opportunity to proudly showcase the many accomplishments achieved by the CDBG Program, and to emphasize the critical role it plays in meeting needs at home, in families, and throughout our neighborhoods.

Your active participation in the Fall River Community Development Week campaign is very important to recognizing all who contribute to our many accomplishments.  Please join Mayor Flanagan, Michael Dion and others on April 22nd at Government Center for a ceremony at 11:00 A.M. followed by a luncheon to showcase the CDBG Program and increase public awareness on the significant benefits to our community.

Additionally,  we would like to invite anyone interested to join the Community Development Agency and Catholic Social Services on April 23rd at 6:00pm in the City Council Hearing Room of Government Center for a First Time Home Buyers Information Session.
