Wyandotte Will Use $200,000 in Federal Grants on Street Repairs, Housing Rehab

The Wyandotte Youth Assistance Program also will be funded with the money.

Street repairs are at the top of the list of how

A majority of the money — about $140,000 — is coming from the federal Community Development Block Grant program.

"The primary objectives of the Community Development Program are to assist low to moderate income families directly or provide benefits in areas where 51% of the residents are low to moderate income, such as replacing the urban infrastructure of streets, improve recreational facilities and programs and assist in meeting special needs of the physically disabled," the city said in a written statement.

The city's plan for the money is:

  • Street repairs: $130,000
  • Housing rehabilitation: $30,000
  • Administration: $14,000
  • Wyandotte Youth Assistance Program: $13,000

A public hearing was held at Monday night's City Council meeting for residents to speak out on the plan. No one spoke at the hearing and no written comments were submitted.

The city's plan now will be submitted to Wayne County, which handles the disbursement of the money.
