Residents can review proposed Salt Lake City projects funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday at the Sorenson Unity Center, 1383 S. 900 West.

Salt Lake City anticipates receiving about $3.2 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) funds from HUD for use in community projects located in low- and moderate-income areas and for programs that benefit homeless and low- and moderate-income households.

These projects include street improvements, sidewalk accessibility improvements, park improvements, low-interest housing rehab loans, homeownership down-payment assistance, emergency home repair programs, neighborhood/community plan development, affordable and transitional housing projects, and emergency homeless shelter programs.

Local nonprofit agencies also receive help for repairs and rehabilitation of their facilities as well as for program operation.

At the open house, residents can review the funding applications and speak to the applicants.
