With an estimated $280,000 grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development coming down the pipeline, city officials believe that more housing can be built for low-income families and homeless individuals. According to the Rapid City Journal, the Legal and Finance Committee wants to move a majority of the grant to the Community Development Division with the express purpose of building affordable homes. The remainder of the grant would go towards the Freeland Ranch and Youth and Family Services projects. The proposal will move to the full City Council now. Here is the agenda from the meeting.
