Mohave County is expected to receive approximately $812,740.00 in FY2024 Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the Arizona Department of Housing Regional Account (RA). Mohave County also intends to apply for $500,000 in FY2024 and FY2025 competitive 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 urgent need.

A public hearing will be held Thursday January 11, 2024 at 5:30 p.m. in the Saguaro Conference Room in the Community Services Department at the Mohave County Administration Building, 700 West Beale Street, Kingman, Arizona to gather citizen input on the use of the CDBG funds.

Eligible applicants (sub-grantees):

  • Public or private non-profit agency with a 501©(3) from the IRS
  • A special district that is an actual political entity – such as a fire or water district

Examples of the possible fund 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, micro-enterprise
development, acquisition of land for an existing business expansion).
