The city of Camden will soon move forward with plans to upgrade water and sewer infrastructure in the Riverdale neighborhood, thanks to its recently awarded $750,000 Community Development Block Grant. The city learned it received approval for the grant in early July, City Manager Mel Pearson reported to Camden City Council during its July 14 work session. The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and administered by the S.C. Department of Commerce and administered through regional councils of government, can be used for a variety of projects including neighborhood revitalization, community infrastructure improvement, providing public utilities and creating or retaining jobs.
