The Town of Parker is expected to receive approximately $179,655.00 in FY 2014, from federal CDBG funds from the Arizona Department of Housing Regional Account (RA). The Town of Parker also intends to apply for $179,655 in FY 2014 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 at 6:00 pm on March 27th, 2014, at Town Council Chambers, 1314 11th Street to gather citizen input on the use of the CDBG funds. Examples of possible uses include the following:

Public infrastructure (i.e., water, street improvements);
Community facilities (e.g., parks, libraries, senior or youth centers);
Housing (e.g., owner-occupied or multi-family rehab, utility connections on private property, new housing constructed by a non-profit);
Economic development (e.g., a loan to a business for job creation, micro-enterprise development, acquisition of land for an existing business expansion).
