March 20, 2013 Quartzsite to receive CDBG funds Town of Quartzsite Public Hearing Regarding Use of CDBG Funds The Town of Quartzsite is expected to receive approximately $167,231 in FY 2012 federal CDBG funds from the Arizona Department of Housing Regional Account (RA). CDBG funds must be used to benefit low-income persons and areas, alleviate slum and blight or address urgent need. Two public hearings will be held at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm on April 3, 2013 at Quartzsite Community Center, 295 Chandler St. to gather citizen input on the use of the CDBG funds. Examples of possible 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 a non-profit); 4) Public services (e.g., paying the salary of an additional staff person to expand a Head Start program, purchasing a van to transport persons with disabilities, equipment and rent to start a new job training program; and 5) Economic development (e.g., a loan to a business for job creation, microenterprise development, acquisition of land for an existing business expansion).
