The city of Apache Junction is expected to receive an estimated $100,000 in federal Community Development Block Grant funds for the fiscal year 2020 from the Arizona Department of Housing regional account. The city may also apply for up to $300,000 in CDBG funds from the State Special Projects 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 on Monday, Feb. 10, to gather citizen input on the use of the CDBG funds.
