The first is an emergency solutions grant for BrightHouse totaling $37,525. BrightHouse is the area domestic violence shelter formerly known as the Sexual Assault Domestic Violence Center. The grant is administered by the Kansas Housing Resources Corporation.
The council will also hold a public hearing and take possible action for a community development block grant for housing rehab projects within the newly-established Creekside Neighborhood.
The $256,500 grant will target an area that is bordered by West 8th Avenue on the north, the alley between West 5th Avenue and West 6th Avenue on the south, the alley between North Washington Street and North Main Street on the east, and North Adams Street on the west. The proposed rehab includes nine rental properties and seven that are owner-occupied. The funds are through the Kansas Department of Commerce.
Tuesday’s special meeting of the Hutchinson City Council begins at 9 a.m. in the Hutchinson city offices.
