KINGMAN, Ariz. – The City of Kingman is expected to receive approximately $406,068 in FY2024 Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the Arizona Department of Housing Regional Account (RA). The City of Kingman also intends to apply for $500,000 in FY2024 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 in Council Chambers at 5:00 PM on Thursday, February 22, 2024 at 310 N. 4th Street, Kingman, AZ to gather citizen input on the use of the CDBG funds.  

Examples of 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 a non-profit);

4)      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);
