City Council To Adjust Focus towards Neediest Citizens

The Rapid City Council approved four recommendations that would allow the city to focus addressing only the neediest of citizens.  Federal support dropped from $530,000 in 2010 to $443,000 this year and looks to continue to drop. Recommendations included the creation of a committee to determine who receives aid, as well as pursuing other funding options. According to the Rapid City Journal, Community Development Manager Barbara Garcia hoped for “tax-increment financing to be an incentive for developers to build more affordable housing".
