NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the County of Lassen will conduct a public meeting on May 16, 2023 at 10:00 a.m., at the Board of Supervisors Chambers, 707 Nevada Street, Susanville, in order to discuss a possible application for funding under the 2022 State Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program and to solicit public input.

CDBG funds are provided as grants for a wide range of activities directed toward economic development, improvement of community facilities and infrastructure, neighborhood revitalization, and public services.

The County of Lassen has approximately $307,971 in CDBG Program Income, and Lassen County Health and Social Services is proposing to submit an application under the 2022 CDBG NOFA to use that Program Income to provide needed upgrades and improvements to the Westwood Community Center.
