Community Development Block Grant & HOME Program

The City of Huntington Beach participates in the Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership (HOME) Programs. Each year the City uses CDBG and HOME funds to assist non-profit public service organizations that provide services and housing to low and moderate income residents.The City also provides funding for selected capital expenditure projects that result in developments or construction that meet the eligibility criteria for federal program funds.

The Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) is authorized under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), through the federal budget process, allocates funds to communities who carry out the national objectives of the CDBG program: to benefit Low-Moderate Income persons, prevent or eliminate slums or blight, or to meet an urgent community need. Seventy percent (70%) of funds benefit persons of 80% median income or less. Click Here to access current HUD Income Limits and be sure to select Orange County, CA.

HOME Investment Partnership

In an effort to expand and preserve its existing affordable housing stock, Huntington Beach has worked with Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs) to acquire multifamily rental properties.  These buildings are rehabilitated and then are made available to persons below 60% of Orange County median income for a minimum of 15 years.  The CHDO must enter into an agreement with the City that outlines all of the affordability requirements, property maintenance standards, and long-term monitoring requirements that are required by HOME regulations.
