Public Hearing (P-2) Mohave County Public Hearing 
Regarding Use of CDBG Funds 
Mohave County is expected to receive approximately $427,612.00 in FY 2022 Federal CDBG funds from the Arizona Department of Housing Regional Account (RA). Mohave County also intends to apply for $500,000 in FY 2022 and FY 2023 CDBG funds from the State Special Project (SSP) account. CDBG funds must be used to benefit low-income persons and areas, alleviate slum and blight or address an urgent need. 
 
A public hearing will be held November 9, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. in the Saguaro Room at the Mohave County Administration Building, 700 West Beale Street, Kingman, Arizona to gather citizen input on the use of CDBG funds. 
 
Examples of the possible uses include the following: 
 
1. Public Infrastructure (e.g., water, wastewater, street improvements); 
2. Community Facilities (e.g., parks, health clinics, libraries, senior or youth centers)
3. Housing (e.g., owner-occupied or multi-family rehab, utility connections on private property, new housing constructed by non-profit);
4. Public Services (e.g., paying the salary of an additional staff person to expand a Head Start program, purchasing equipment, and rent to start a new job training program; 
5. Economic Development (e.g., a loan to a business for job creation, microenterprise development, acquisition of land for an existing business expansion).
