CDBG Funding Helps Provide Pocatello Senior Activity Center with Combi Oven


Thanks to funding from the City of Pocatello Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, the Pocatello Senior Activity Center has a new, state-of-the-art oven.

The new Combi Oven allows the center’s kitchen staff to make meals faster and cooks to grill, roast, bake, steam, stew, blanch, and poach food. The new appliance is more efficient and officials estimate the new oven will save the center roughly $5,000 in energy costs. The CDBG program assisted with the public service project by providing $9,438 in funding. The Pocatello Senior Activity Center provided the additional $2,896 for the purchase.

“The Senior Activity Center’s mission is to provide a nutritious meal for seniors who are unable either physical or financially to provide for themselves,” said Wally Smith, Pocatello Senior Activity Center Board Chairman. “Thank you to the City of Pocatello. Funding like this specific grant is just what we need to progress and sustain our center.”

“These efforts are what the CDBG program is all about,” said Adam Lane, Community Development Block Grant Program Manager with the City of Pocatello. “Without the CDBG funding, projects like this would not be completed, leaving vulnerable citizens without needed services.”

CDBG funds are available to local non-profits and community organizations that serve low and moderate income residents as well as low and moderate income homeowners who need help making repairs to their homes.
