Public Hearing Regarding Use of CDBG Funds
The Town of Clarkdale is expected to receive approximately $348,000 in FY22 federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the Arizona Department of Housing Regional Account (RA). The Town may also apply up to $500,000 in FY22 CDBG funds from the State Special Projects (SSP) account. CDBG funds must be used to benefit low-income persons and areas, alleviate slum and blight or address urgent need. A public hearing will be held on February 8th, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. in the Clark Memorial Clubhouse, Men’s Lounge, 19 North 9th Street, Clarkdale, AZ to gather citizen input on the use of the CDBG funds.
Examples of possible uses of funds include the following:
- Public infrastructure (e.g., water, wastewater, street improvements);
- Community facilities (e.g., parks, health clinics, libraries, senior or youth centers);
- Housing (e.g., owner-occupied or multi-family rehab, utility connections on private property, new housing constructed by a non-profit); and
- Public services (e.g., paying the salary of an additional staff person to expand a Head Start program, purchasing a van to transport persons with disabilities, equipment and rent to start a new job training program).
