The public has opportunities to shape policy this week as various Haverhill boards meet. In the interest of transparency in government, WHAV provides this list of upcoming meetings every week.

Haverhill nonprofits serving the needy that may be eligible to share in the city’s allocation of federal Community Development Block Grant money have an opportunity today to receive assistance preparing applications.

Community Development Director Andrew K. Herlihy said the city encourages as many applications as possible, but grants are limited under law to 15% of the total federal allocation—or around $155,000.

Community Affairs Advisory Board members are available for the Technical Assistance Workshop online at 4 p.m. to offer thoughts about what makes for a competitive application. There’s a link here at the city’s Community Development web page at
