CDBG-Funded Projects in Warren County to Move Forward


WARREN, Pa. – A pair of projects are on the docket for federal Community Development Block Grant funding in Warren County.

The county has $248,000 in available funding for 2021, which is ‘up a little from last year’ according to Grants Administrator Lorri Dunlap.

The projects to go forward are in Clarendon to improve the stormwater system on Center St., as well as a project to improve stormwater issues in Bear Lake.

“When it rains, the yards on both sides of the street flood,” Dunlap said regarding the project in Clarendon.

The projected cost of the project in Clarendon is $110,242, while the project in Bear Lake will total $93,356.

The rest of the CDBG balance will be used for administrative costs, Dunlap said.

There was another project on the docket to improve a water line on High St. in Sheffield, but that was pulled last month by Sheffield Township because there was an ordinance that required the residents to connect in order to be eligible to use the funding. The township pulled that project because they didn’t want to make residents connect who didn’t want to.
