Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program 

CDBG Block Grants provide funding for City infrastructure and improvements under Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity guidelines and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The City of Buckeye has been a recipient of CDBG for a number of years through a cooperative agreement with Maricopa County, which guarantees the City will be considered for CDBG funds from the entitlement the County receives through HUD (Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development).

Working together, Maricopa County reviews Buckeye’s CDBG application for eligible activities and makes a recommendation to the CDAC (Community Development Advisory Committee) for funding. Projects are considered eligible if they comply with the Maricopa 2015-2020 Consolidated Plan.

Current Projects

FY 2017-18 CDBG Miller to 4th/Monroe to Centre Water Infrastructure Rehabilitation Project

The proposed project is part of a comprehensive improvement plan for the upgrading and replacement of aging (some 45+ years), undersized and inadequately pressurized water infrastructure. The project will install 4,890 linear feet of new six (6) inch and eight (8) inch waterline pipe. Improvements include:

  • Water Quality
    • Replacing Concrete Asbestos Pipe
    • Replacement of pipes with tuberculation (buildup of deposits inside the pipe) which also limits pipe capacity and water quality.
  • Fire Protection
    • Improved water flow and pressure will be improved with new lines
    • Installation of new fire hydrants
    • Better placement and shorter distance (coverage) between fire hydrants
      • Additionally, many of the existing fire hydrants are beyond their economic service life and are of mixed origin (manufacturer) with limited availability of spare/replacement parts.
    • replacement of non-standard standpipes
  • Improvements will tie into existing infrastructure, creating a uniform looped system which will provide existing and future property owners:
    • Improved water flow/pressure
    • New copper service to homes
    • Improved water quality
    • Increased fire flow and coverage

Improved operational control (i.e. valve placement); better water flow/pressure, water quality, increased fire flow and coverage, as well as increased operational control (i.e. valve placement).

Enhanced operational control will limit the number of affected residents during shutdowns; based on the proposed diameter of the pipeline and the volume that would be able to flow through that size, the pipeline is sufficiently sized to provide service to all properties that are currently undeveloped within the proposed project area.

FY 2016-2017 (did not participate)

FY 2015-2016 CDBG Roosevelt Sewer Project

Improvements will include construction of upgrading the sewer lateral that runs along Roosevelt Avenue between 7th and 9th Streets in the downtown area. The long term outcome will benefit residents in the area to have the ideal capacity to deliver waste byproducts to the designated wastewater facility; thus eliminating current and future possibilities of blockages and or overflows in addition eliminating the possibility of back siphoning into residential homes.

Past Projects

FY 2013-2014 CDBG Northern Addition Sidewalk Project - (Improvements include construction of curb and gutter, driveways, sidewalks and ADA ramps on Narramore, Nelson and Eason Avenues between 2nd and 4th streets in the downtown area. Construction - Completed

FY 2012-2013 CDBG Project 3rd and 2nd Ave Sidewalks - Completed

FY 2012-2013 CDBG Project North and South of Monroe Waterline Rehabilitation - Completed

FY 2011-2012 CDBG Project 4th Ave and Senior Pedestrian Sidewalk – Completed

FY 2009-2010 CDBG Project Buckeye Alarcon, 6th and 7th Ave Sidewalks – Completed

FY2008-2009 CDBG South of Monroe Sidewalks – Completed

The sidewalks designed and planned for construction provide tremendous benefits to our community:

  • A safe route for students and residents to local schools and various downtown establishments.
  • Safe access from local residences to the local medical care facilities, local retailers, grocers and community services.
  • Access for children, students, elderly and physically challenged residents with ADA-compatible sidewalks where they do not currently exist.
