For Projects Benefiting Low-income Residents, Homeless, More

The City of Moreno Valley is now accepting application proposals for grant funds dedicated to programs and projects benefiting low- and moderate-income residents or neighborhoods, eliminating blight, and addressing affordable housing and homelessness issues.

The City anticipates receiving approximately $2.082 million in federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding, approximately $672,000 in HOME Investment Partnerships funding and approximately $178,000 in Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) funding for Fiscal Year 2020-2021.

CDBG program funds must be used for projects benefiting low- and moderate-income residents or neighborhoods, to eliminate blight or for community emergency needs. HOME program funds must be used to create, retain or rehabilitate affordable housing. ESG program funds must be used to improve the quality of life for people who are homeless or those at risk of homelessness.

Examples of eligible projects include neighborhood public improvements, housing rehabilitation programs, affordable-housing creation, crime prevention, economic development and public services. Both government and certified non-profit agencies may apply for project or program funding.

"This is a great example of the kind of local control that allows cities to decide what works best for them," said Dr. Yxstian Gutierrez, Mayor of Moreno Valley.
