People will have a chance to weigh in on Superior’s plan to help those struggling because of the COVID-19 pandemic using Community Development Block Grant funding.

In April, Mayor Jim Paine announced the city would allocate $250,000 for rental assistance, $50,000 to house the homeless who require isolation and $117,000 for nonprofit organizations that are responding to the emergency. The funds are part of a $667,000 aid package officials put together to invest in the city’s stability during uncertain times.

Money for the proposal would come from an additional $417,000 Community Development Block Grant allocation the city will receive through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act.

The Superior City Council set a public hearing for 6:30 p.m. May 19 to consider the proposal. The public is encouraged to attend council meetings virtually. Information will be provided on the agenda when it’s posted at in the days leading up to the hearing.
