DREAMS I is a city program that provides a neighborhood plan, up to $1.5 million dollars in infrastructure money to the neighborhood, and $330,000 in housing rehabilitation dollars through Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds provided by Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Your involvement in this process will allow your voice to be heard when making decisions on how this money can be spent. Through DREAMS I, the Historic Holliday Park will receive an update to their neighborhood plan that will outline how that money will be spent.
