Income survey
The City of Webster is in the planning stages of a building project which will consist of either constructing a new fire and police station or making improvements to the existing facility. The city is interested in applying to the CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) program for up to $500,000 in grant funding to help pay for the project. To be eligible to apply, an income survey is required to determine whether the City of Webster and surrounding area meets low-to-moderate income requirements. The survey will be conducted by telephone and will not ask for actual income. You will be asked if you are above or below the income threshold based on the number of people in your household and information such as marital status, gender, disability, race and ethnicity. Day County residents will be chosen at random by a research randomizer. You may be contacted by telephone in the next few weeks by a local volunteer. Your participation in the income survey process is imperative in order to assess eligibility requirements and apply for this grant.
