Funding is available for housing, economic development, community development, neigborhood revitalization, and homelessness services.

Community Development Block Grant Eligibility Considerations:

The CDBG program affords residents of Pima County with the opportunity to improve their communities by funding activities that provide decent housing and a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities, principally for low-and moderate- income persons.

Grant awards are made to implement a wide range of community development activities directed toward neighborhood revitalization, community development and the provision of improved community facilities and services.

Projects that are located or serve populations in unincorporated Pima County; designated Community Development Target Areas; Marana; and, South Tucson are given priority.

Programs must meet income eligibility requirements by directly benefiting persons or households that are low- to moderate-income or project must be located in an area where the majority (51%) of the residents are low-and moderate-income individuals or households.

Emergency Solutions Grant Eligibility Considerations:
