Community Development Block Grants

Bradfordsville received $354,576 for its wastewater treatment plant rehabilitation project.  It includes an additional 3,780 feet of re-habed lines to help reduce inflow & infiltration.
Caneyville received $507,000 for a water line replacement project totaling over 25,000 feet of line.  In addition to reducing water loss the project also eliminates old concrete asbestos lines from the system.

The CDBG program through the US Dept. of Housing and Urban Development provides assistance to communities for use in revitalizing neighborhoods, expanding affordable housing and economic opportunities, providing infrastructure and/or improving community facilities and services.

The Commonwealth of Kentucky’s Department for Aging and Independent Living held the first Kentucky Senior Hunger Summit on October 30th.

Information from the Summit revealed:
- Nearly 5 million older adults currently face hunger in our country

- In Kentucky, 16.6% of the 60+ population suffer from food insecurity – a 10% increase over the last four years.

- Extensive research has shown that a strong correlation exists between food insecurity and chronic health conditions.

- According to one study, food-insecure households spend about 45% more ($6,100) on medical care in a year than people in food-secure households ($4,200).

Eight LTADD staff members were in attendance to collaborate with community partners and find real solutions for tomorrow.
