The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program provides annual grants on a formula basis to states, cities, and counties to develop viable communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons.
To apply for a CDBG grant, you must visit the website and create an account.
As part of the entitlement process, Pinal County communities may elect each three-year qualifying period to join the county’s program, execute an agreement, and receive funding under the county’s allocation. Four Pinal County communities have executed an agreement: Eloy, Florence, Mammoth, and Maricopa. Therefore, only unincorporated Pinal County and these four communities may have projects funded by the county’s CDBG program.
Projects under the CDBG program must address one of three national objectives established by Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These national objectives are:
Projects are identified each year and are listed in the Annual Action Plan.
The communities of Eloy, Florence, Mammoth, and Maricopa may submit a project on behalf of their local government. Pinal County non-profits may also submit a request for funding, if their project meets one of the national objectives and fits within the goals of the current Consolidated Plan.
The application process is conducted each year between October and February for funding the following August/September. This process starts with a public meeting. Any project to be considered must be discussed during a public meeting. Then an application must be submitted. Technical assistance is provided by Pinal County to assist with the process. CDBG funds are not awarded to individuals. However, and individual may recommend a project.
