TOWN OF JEROME
Public Hearing Regarding Use of CDBG Funds
The Town of Jerome intends to apply for $300,000 in FY16 and/or FY17 federal 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. Based on citizen input as well as local and state planning objectives, a potential project has been selected to be forwarded to the State of Arizona with a request for funding. A public hearing will be held at the regular Town Council meeting at 7:00 p.m. on April 11, 2017 at Jerome Town Hall, 600 Clark Street, to discuss the potential project. It is expected that the Town Council will select the project for application at this hearing and adopt applicable resolutions. The potential CDBG project is named and described as follows:
1. Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation. $300,000 to provide health and safety related improvements to 8-10 homes whose homeowners are at or below 80% of Area Median Income.
