CDBG | HOME | ESG
Under the Department of Development Services, the Housing Division administers three annual federal grant programs from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The city utilizes these funds to provide affordable housing opportunities and fund a variety of community development projects that benefit low/moderate income residents.
- Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program is a flexible program that provides resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. The CDBG program works to ensure decent affordable housing and to provide public services to the most vulnerable community members.
- HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) is the largest federal block grant to state and local governments designed exclusively to create decent affordable housing for low-income households: through the rehabilitation and creation of housing, expanding the capacity of nonprofit housing providers, strengthening the ability of the state and local governments to provide housing, and leveraging private sector participation in housing projects.
- Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program supports outreach and shelters for homeless individuals and families who have been living on the streets or other places not meant for people to live. The ESG program also supports programs that prevent or rapidly re-house homeless in Chula Vista.
There are three fundamental planning documents in relation to the federal grant programs:
- The 2015-2019 Five-Year Consolidated Plan is a planning document which sets local strategies and priorities for allocating the federal funding over the five-year timeframe. It acts as a combined plan and application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for federal funds including Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs.
- The 2016-17 Annual Action Plan is the annual component of the Consolidated Plan that specifically describes how Chula Vista will spend federal resources over a one-year period for activities serving low/ moderate-income persons, the homeless, and persons with special needs.
- The 2015-2019 Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing is an analysis that represents conclusions about impediments to fair housing choice in our City, as well as actions necessary to address any identified impediments.
