PITTSBURG, KS – The City of Pittsburg has received funding from the State of Kansas through the federal Community Development Block Grant-Coronavirus (CDBG-CV) program to help local businesses and meal programs affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
To be eligible to receive a CDBG-CV Economic Development grant, the recipient business must be a for-profit business and retaining jobs for low to moderate-income people. CDBG-CV Economic Development grants can be used to pay for the following expenses:
- Working capital such as wages, utilities, rent, etc.
- The purchase of 60 days’ worth of inventory needed to reopen (60 days will begin on the day the business was allowed to reopen).
CDBG-CV Meal Program grants are intended to provide Kansas cities and counties with funds to supplement various programs that provide access to nutritious foods during the COVID-19 crisis. CDBG-CV Meal Program grant funds can be directed toward organizations for the replenishment of local food banks or to support organizations that provide meal programs for children impacted by the loss of school meal programs.
The mission of the City of Pittsburg is to provide exceptional services, facilities and activities with integrity, professionalism, excellent customer service and a commitment to economic vitality.
