Mayor Sarno Voices Concern on President Trump’s Plan to Eliminate CDBG

Friday, March 10, 2017

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states, “I’m very much concerned, on one hand President Trump states that he wants to help cities, especially urban centers, and then issues an edict to eliminate Community Development Block Grants. CDBG is a ‘lifeline’ to urban mayors for empowerment initiatives for youth development, economic development, job creation, housing efforts etc. Once again, President Trump is sending a mixed-message and by the way – is there a replacement program? The elimination of CDBG would be absolutely devastating to cities, especially urban centers. Please hear us, so that we can work together for the overall betterment of our cities.”
