That figure is $75,000 less than what the county received in 2005, Wolfe said.
He noted that the county's funding decreased by about $11,000 from 2004 to 2005.
"Everybody across the nation is going to (get) cut in CDGB funding. There is no indication, as things have been presented, that things are going to go up," Wolfe said.
Two municipalities in the county, Chambersburg and Waynesboro, automatically receive funding each year from the CDBG program. The two are designated "entitlement communities" based on factors like average income.
"It's one of the few programs that exists that allows local government to put money back into community organizations," said Bill McLaughlin, president of the Chambersburg Borough Council.
Chambersburg has been awarded about $275,000, down from $305,376 last year.
Some $166,806 has been allocated to Waynesboro, which received $184,783 in 2005.
Erik Genga, who is Waynesboro's CDBG consultant through Mullin & Lonergan Associates, said he is "baffled each year" to see how the money is distributed among municipalities with similar populations.
Franklin County often distributes its CDBG money to its smaller municipalities. Money in the past has gone to Dry Run, for a water project, and Mercersburg, for sidewalk repair.
Cumberland County, Pa., has been awarded $1,552,938 for 2006. The county did not see significant cuts because it is an "urban county" based on population, said Tom Fields, community development director with the Cumberland County Redevelopment Authority.
The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development distributes CDBG funds for the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
