Community Development Block Grant’s Stalled by Sequester

Automatic federal budget cuts are stalling at least one project that’s being partially funded by federal dollars. It was announced earlier this month that Wellman would receive a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant to update a portion of their wastewater system. Wellman City Administrator Nick Pacha attended a meeting in Ames last week, where he learned that dispersal of the CDBG’s are being stalled by the sequester. Pacha says he’ll be notified once the funds are available.
