Sterling Land Trust Breaks Ground
The City of Greenville celebrated National Community Development Week (April 2 – 6) with a groundbreaking ceremony on April 4 at 310 South Calhoun Street. Elected officials and City staff were joined by representatives from the Sterling Land Trust and neighborhood residents to break ground on a new rental home in the Sterling community.
Each year, National Community Development Week highlights the impact that programs like the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) program, which are administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), have on communities throughout the United States.The HOME program, which provides grants to over 600 local participating jurisdictions to create safe, sanitary and affordable housing, provided $20,000 for the new 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home, marking the first time the Sterling Land Trust will build a home utilizing the City’s HUD funding.
