Last June the City of Glasgow completed an updated Housing Plan which showed great need for demolition of blighted structures and rehabilitation of single-family homes located within the City limits of Glasgow. Since then the Glasgow Housing Advisory Board was established and GNDC has been working with the City of Glasgow to complete an Environmental Assessment and application for funding to the CDBG Non-Competitive program for housing. The application is nearing completion and is anticipated to be submitted in early April. If awarded, this program has the potential of bringing housing assistance to the residents of Glasgow as early as this summer by means of demolition of blighted structures with one-to-one replacement and rehabilitation of health and safety issues for low to moderate income residents.
