The City of Clarksburg asked residents on spending priorities via online survey from August 27, 2021 until noon, September 10, 2021. Survey results were discussed with the Clarksburg City Council in September of 2022. Funding priorities of parkland development, small business development and assistance, and multiple infrastructure needs were identified in this process. To date, the City staff working with City Council are developing grant award programs to facilitate private and non-profit use of portions of these funds and ensure that meaningful investment is made by the City.
Additional information related to use of these funds can be found online though the U.S. Department of Treasury website.
Future grant program information will be included on this page.
