These federal funds are taxpayer’s monies being returned to communities. The City of Wellington is applying for $300,000 to be used on the rehabilitation of homes. If awarded a Community Development Block Grant, the City of Wellington will offer housing rehabilitation assistance to qualifying low-to- moderate income households in a selected target area.
