Rural Valley Borough officials have a wish list of potential projects that need to be tackled, including upgrades to the borough’s water system. But they need help from residents before they can begin to take on those projects.

That’s because the borough is planning to apply for funding through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, which requires residents to fill out a Demographic Survey.

Each year the county receives CDBG grant funds. Any project considered for CDBG funding must meet the eligibility and fundability requirements; therefore, demographic information is necessary.

Armstrong County Department of Planning and Development – on behalf of the Armstrong Board of Commissioners – will assist Rural Valley Borough in conducting those surveys.

“Rural Valley residents were randomly selected to complete the Demographic Survey,” said Kathy Heilman, of the county’s Planning and Development Department.

The surveys were mailed July 12th, with the requested return date of July 31st.

Rural Valley Borough Council President William Spera has asked that all residents who receive surveys to please return the completed surveys using the self-addressed stamped envelope provided.

All information will be held in the strictest of confidence. Questions may be directed to Kathy Heilman at 724-548-3720 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
