At its May 5 meeting, the Holly Springs Town Council discussed COVID-19 community relief grants and awarded a grant to Western Wake Crisis Ministry for $10,000 to increase housing, food and financial stability for families in the western and southwestern regions of Wake County.
The nonprofit formally requested support for its COVID-19 Family Recovery Fund. Funds would be used by the nonprofit to provide financial assistance, case management, coaching and resource support for families most at-risk of food and housing insecurity.
The council discussed the possibility of additional COVID-19 community relief grants.
Also at the meeting, Holly Springs Mayor Dick Sears encouraged observance of May 16 as Kids to Parks Day in Holly Springs. The nationally coordinated day is designed to connect children and families with local, state, and national parks.
The council also approved:
- voluntary annexations of 23 acres around Old Holly Springs Apex Road and 4 acres off Bass Lake Road.
- a LAPP Grant review and oversight agreement for the Holly Springs Road Widening project, which helps keep the transportation bond project on schedule.
