Our mission is to provide education, employment, shelter, and basic needs services to individuals, families,
and communities so they may enhance their opportunities for physical, social, and economic well-being.


Maricopa County’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program utilizes approximately $2 million annually in federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for various programs and activities that provide much needed assistance to low- and moderate-income individuals, families and communities.  The funding is distributed to participating Urban County communities and community-based social service agencies to help pay for various programs and projects.  
Urban County areas include the municipalities of Buckeye, El Mirage, Gila Bend, Goodyear, Guadalupe, Litchfield Park, Queen Creek, Tolleson, Wickenburg and Youngtown and includes unincorporated Maricopa County.

The Community Development Block Grant program is governed by the policies and strategies outlined by the Community Development Advisory Committee (CDAC).
