The city of Apache Junction is expected to receive an estimated $120,000 in FY 2015 of federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the Arizona Department of Housing Regional Account (RA). The city of Apache Junction may also apply for up to $300,000 in FY 2015 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. Public hearings will be held to gather citizen input on the use of the CDBG funds on the following date:

Examples of possible projects include:
1) Public infrastructure (e.g., water, wastewater, street improvements);
2) Community facilities (e.g., health clinics, libraries, senior or youth centers);
3) Housing (e.g., owner occupied or multifamily rehab, utility connections on private property, new housing constructed by a non-profit);
4) Public services (e.g., 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, acquisition of land for an existing business expansion).
