City gets $500,000 for home improvement
Cleveland has been awarded a $500,000 home program grant that will make some eligible homeowners very happy during the next year. Awarded by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, the money is to be used to rehabilitate existing homes and to build new ones for qualified city residents. The even better news is that homeowners will not have to repay the monies they are awarded. City Manager Philip Cook and a representative from Public Management Inc. will explain the program and answer viewer questions during a live call-in show aired by Cleveland's cable channel 95 at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 16. Cook says the city will start taking applications for the grant funds by the end of February. Applicants must meet several requirements to qualify, including those that relate to income levels and home ownership.

 

City election scheduled for May 15
City council will make it official next Tuesday night in its regular monthly meeting - Saturday, May 15 will be the City general election for three council seats. City voters will choose council members for positions 3, 4 and 5. Senior member Glen Dodson is not eligible to run again: His seat will be up for grabs. Councilmen Bill McAdams and Willie Carter face the need for re-election for another two-year term in office.

 

Grants awarded to local school districts
Cleveland and Tarkington ISDs will each receive a preliminary grant of $80,000 from the Texas High School Completion and Success grant. The awards are part of the new Texas High School Project, a public-private initiative designed to increase high school graduation and college graduation rates statewide. The grants will be used to finance new programs or enhance successful activities such as early intervention programs, credit recovery, flexible scheduling and work/study programs, and after-school, evening or summer learning opportunities. Funding is targeted to projects that demonstrate the greatest potential to increase graduation rates among economically disadvantaged students.
