Lake Havasu City has received approximately $810,681.00 in FY2024 federal CDBG funds from the Arizona Department of Housing Regional Account (RA) for the purpose of homeowner-occupied rehabilitation. Lake Havasu City 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 Monday, March 4, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. in the City Council Chambers Room located at 2360 McCulloch Blvd., Lake Havasu City, Arizona, 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); and
  5. Economic development (e.g., a loan to a business for job creation, micro-enterprise development, acquisition of land for an existing business expansion).
