    City of El Paso’s Department of Community and Human Development to Receive National Award

    The National Community Development Association (NCDA) will award the City of El Paso’s Department of Community and Human Development along with six other winners, the John A. Sasso National Community Development Week Award. The award will be presented on Friday, June 20, 2008 at the National Community Development Association’s (NCDA) 2008 Annual Conference in Pittsburg, PA during the John A. Sasso Awards Luncheon.

    The John A. Sasso National Community Development Award recognizes those communities that exemplify the spirit of the Community Development Block Grant Program (a federal grant the City receives from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development or HUD) by showcasing its works through the activities and events during Community Development Week. To be eligible for the award, applicants must provide empirical evidence that highlight the City’s dedication to positively affecting the lives of its lower income residents.

    The City of El Paso exemplifies all that National Community Development Week stands for. It encourages the participation of the community. It is also apparent that the City of El Paso has established many avenues of getting information and services to its citizens.

    In an effort to educate the public, media, federal, state and locally elected officials of the importance of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, the City of El Paso’s Department of Community and Human Development celebrated Community Development Week on April 7-12.

    For more information on CDBG Programs call:
