The additional funding of $206,313 will be provided through Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) entitlement program and is income-based, meaning the funding will be allocated to programs that assist families with an income of less than 80% of the Area Median Income.

The city plans to direct these funds towards the support of local food pantries to provide food security assistance for the community.
