Community Development Advisory Committee


The Community Development Advisory Committee was created by the Board of Supervisors to act in an advisory capacity on matters concerning the Maricopa County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, including funding recommendations, fair housing, and housing affordability issues affecting low/moderate income people. It is a standing committee for the duration of the Maricopa County CDBG program. It functions in such a manner as to allow continuity of effective involvement of participating cities and towns and the citizens organizations throughout all stages of the Block Grant program.

Article VII - Conflict of Interest

At all times, the CDAC members will comply with Arizona law (A.R.S. §38-503) and HUD regulations regarding conflict of interest. No member of CDAC may use his or her position on the Committee for a purpose that is, or gives the appearance of being, motivated by a desire for private gain for themselves or specific others, particularly those with whom they have family, business or other ties. In any instance where a conflict might arise because of the potential for financial gain, the member must disclose that financial benefit publicly and the CDAC will follow the federal regulations in securing a decision from HUD on the potential conflict. Any member who feels that personal reasons may unduly prejudice his/her decision shall disqualify himself/herself without reason or suggestions of his/her interest and take no part in discussion or voting on this matter."
