The city’s Community Development Block Grant program invites Marysville residents to review its annual performance evaluation report on how federal block grant funds are spent in the city, mostly to help address issues around low-income housing and homelessness.

The draft Consolidated Annual Program Evaluation Report, or CAPER, describes actions, changes and accomplishments toward carrying out priorities and specific objectives in program year 2018. Just over $354,000 was distributed in Marysville in 2018.

Review the draft report:

Provide public comment by Monday, Sept. 23:

  • By mail to 80 Columbia Ave., Marysville WA 98270 (deadline 4 p.m. Sept. 23)
  • By email to ahess@marysvillewa.gov or cholland@marysvillewa.gov (deadline 4 p.m. Sept. 23)
  • In person at City Council public hearing at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23, at Marysville City Hall.

All comments received will be taken into consideration and included in the final report 

The draft report will be made available in a format accessible to persons with disabilities upon request.

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program provides federal grants to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and expanding economic opportunities for low- and moderate-income persons. The City reviews applications and awards funds to eligible applicants for activities that meet established criteria.
