Town Hall and Community Center Fund Raising Kickoff
Some time ago, the town was able to secure a CDBG grant for about $425,000 for a new community center. It was a multi-year grant that required 50% of the funds to be spent by the end of 2022, while the balance was to be spent by the end of 2023. We had some delays in the design process and risked forfeiting the funding. Fortunately, we recently received a one-year extension that will allow us to perfect the design and move forward with construction.
We also have funds from the sale of our town hall and we are seeking funding from additional grant sources. During the process, construction costs have skyrocketed, so we are having to be cautious with our design and creative with our funding.
Funds will come from many sources, one of which is from resident and community donations. More details are forthcoming, but as you plan your charitable donations for 2023, please keep our project in mind. We welcome gifts from $1 to $1,000,000. Fund raising plans are in their infancy, but we will likely have a wall of honor for donors, similar to the one in the entrance to the library, and possibly some brick donations, outdoor benches, and more. Checks can be made to Huntsville Town with "Community Center Donation" in the memo section.
