The Community Development Program Manager assists member entities in applying to the Arizona Department of Housing for annual Regional Account (RA) Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), which are funded through the State by the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Funds are allotted to SEAGO each year by the State, based on population and poverty formulations. SEAGO then distributes the funds according to the Method of Distribution (MOD) approved each year by our Executive Board. Additionally, our Program Manager can assist member entities in seeking competitive funds.
Only a City, Town, or County Government is eligible to apply for these funds. However, a Special District or a Nonprofit Agency can receive the funds through the city, town, or county government. In any case, the project must primarily benefit a low to moderate income (LM) population.
This allotment of funds is non-competitive. Each year SEAGO develops a Method of Distribution (MOD) for the funds that is approved by our Executive Board and ADOH. Currently all member communities have elected to rotate the years each community can prepare an application.
The State Special Projects Account is an allotment of funds available from the Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH). Annual statewide competition is announced as an Information Bulletin at ADOH’s website.
