DPR in September

Volunteers Needed

This year, the Town of Davidson requested federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to help with improvements at Roosevelt Wilson Park (play feature and picnic structure) and constructing new sidewalks on Houston Street and Mock Road. To get approval for the funding, the town must show that the project benefits low- and moderate-income persons.  Generally, an applicant can rely on census data to prove this benefit. For the park and sidewalk improvements, the census tract included too large an area to qualify.  The qualification must be done through a door-to-door survey of a smaller area. That's where volunteers come in! Click here to sign up.
