On behalf of the City of Chester, CEDA manages several Federal and State grants that are provided for various housing, community, and economic development projects in the City. Two Programs that provide funding on an annual basis are the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME).
George Carter Boys & Girls Club of Chester Recreation Center
The City has been working for some time with the Boys and Girls Club of Chester to establish a new location for their recreational programs that will not require young children to cross the five lanes of traffic on the increasingly busy Route 291. The new facility will be located at 7th and Madison Streets on a parcel previously assembled by the City for this purpose. The new facility will feature a computer lab, classroom and tutorial space, indoor basketball courts, general recreation/activities area, and other related amenities. Construction for the $4.0 million project will begin once the final design of the center is completed.
