The Bremerton City Council decided this year to make significant changes to how federal community block grant money that it receives will be distributed. This year Bremerton is on track to receive about $390,000 of these funds. The council approved this week to lock the funds – for the next five years – into a specific set of criteria and a zoned target area that includes only the most centered core of downtown Bremerton.
