What is CDBG?
The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a federal grant program by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). CDBG is a formula grant allocated to local governments for the purpose of developing viable urban communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities principally for persons of low and moderate income.
Each year the City of Chino Hills receives approximately $400,000 of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from HUD for local community development, housing activities, and public services. The City administers the distribution of funds to service providers and for capital projects. Regulations governing the CDBG program require that each activity undertaken with CDBG funds meet one of the following three national objectives:
- Benefit people with low and moderate incomes
- Aid in the prevention or elimination of slums and blight
- Meet an urgent need (such as earthquakes, flood, or hurricane relief)
The following activities and services have been funded with CDBG funds:
- Domestic Violence Assistance
- Adult Literacy Services
- Landlord/Tenant Mediation Services
- Food Assistance Program
- Home Improvement Program
- Los Serranos Infrastructure Improvement
