Grants to Arizona nonprofit and for-profit organizations and agencies in eligible regions for local community development projects and public services. Funding is intended to offer housing, a suitable living environment, and improved economic opportunities to low and moderate-income residents of the city of Prescott. Funds may be used for construction activities or direct service activities.

Eligible CDBG projects fall under one of the following broad categories: 

  1. Neighborhood Revitalization, Public Services and Facilities
  2. Human Services and Economic Opportunities
  3. Decent Affordable Housing

To address affordable housing needs, communities may use funds to:

  • Rehabilitate homes owned and occupied by LM persons or rental units in which at least 51 percent of the tenants are or will be LM and will pay “affordable rents”
  • Acquire property to be sold to LM persons or to be converted primarily to rental housing, with at least 51 percent of the units to be occupied by LM persons;
  • Acquire or clear property to be sold or leased to a private developer;
  • Construct off-site improvements for a developer who will build homes at least 51 percent of which will be sold to or constructed by (self-help) LM persons; or
  • Construct or rehabilitate shelters and transitional housing for the homeless.

To promote economic development, CDBG funds can be used to:

  • Lend funds to a business;
  • Provide the business with a loan guarantee;
  • Install a water line allowing a business to locate or expand;
  • Acquire land to be leased to a business; or
  • Provide training and support services to low-to-moderate income persons wishing to start their own businesses.
  • In most cases, the business must agree to create or retain a reasonable number of jobs in relation to the CDBG assistance and hire 51 percent LM income persons.

In addition CDBG funds can be used for:

  • Street, water and wastewater improvements;
  • Housing rehabilitation or buying land for new housing development;
  • The construction of or improvements to parks, libraries, health clinics, shelters for domestic violence victims or the homeless;
  • Salaries of people who provide public services such as child care or job training, or paying for furniture for such programs; and
  • Loans and other kinds of assistance so businesses can hire new employees.
