The Community Development Department received funds from the federal stimulus package through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Community Development Department Director Jennifer Clark said Independence received $202,906 in Community Development Block Grants (CDBG).
"We are pleased Independence will benefit from these funds," Clark said. "There are always more demands than funds available through this program." Projects funded by the CDBG are the restoration of the Andrew Drumm Institute ($52,564), IBS Industries, Maywood Redevelopment Project ($130,052), and the remainder of funding will be retained for administrative allowance.
