Mohave County will provide important information to prospective applicants for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds at an upcoming public hearing. The January 8 hearing that begins at 6:00 p.m. will be held in the Saguaro Room at the Mohave County Administration Building at 700 West Beale Street in downtown Kingman.

Community Services Director Dave Wolf said interested parties must attend the hearing to learn about the application process involving funds that are allocated to benefit low-income persons and areas, alleviate slum and blight or address an urgent need. Examples of potential uses include public infrastructure, community facilities, housing, public services and economic development.

Mohave County is expected to receive more than $750,000 in federal CDBG funds for a two-year cycle beginning in fiscal year 2020 while making application for an additional $300,000 in CDBG funds from a State Special Project Account for the same time period. The Mohave County Board of Supervisors will recommend grant award for up to three project funding applications.

For more information about the hearing, the CDBG program, or for assistance in formulating prospective project ideas, please contact Grants Coordination Specialist Mercedes Nielsen at (928) 753-0723 X4215.
