County Praises GDBG Funds For Rollingwood Community

A Wayne County community is grateful for a Neighborhood Revitalization grant. 

$750,000 from the Community Development Block Grant’s Neighborhood Revitalization Program will be used in the Rollingwood Community in Dudley. 

Commissioner Antonio Williams praised the county’s effort to secure the funding at this week’s Wayne County Board meeting, calling it “team effort.”

Williams also stated the county would benefit from having one permanent staff member dedicated to securing CDBG funding.

Debra Graham from the Rollingwood Community also thanked the county commissioners on Tuesday.

Graham, who had watched water backup in her yard over the years, says Rollingwood needs the improvements for its future.

This grant money will be used for housing assistance, including rehabilitation, clearance, and reconstruction, as well as storm drainage improvements, including piping and ditching in the Rollingwood Community.
