Housing groups receive federal funds

A total of $1.6 million in Community Development Block Grant

funds, provided by the Federal Department of Housing and Urban

Development, was doled out to 11 Huntington Beach groups who serve

low-income families.

Programs funded were Project Self Sufficiency, the Oak View

Community Center, the Huntington Beach Community Clinic and Adult Day

Services of Orange County.

But there was not enough to go around this year. Some of the

programs that will do without this funding source are the Orange

County Council on Aging, the Boys and Girls Club and local parks.
