Community Development Block Grant & HOME Program

The City of Huntington Beach participates in the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) programs. Each year the City uses CDBG and HOME funds to assist nonprofit 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 CDBG program is authorized under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974. The U.S. 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  and select "Orange County, CA" to access current HUD Income Limits for Huntington Beach. 

The Citizen Participation Advisory Board makes recommendations to City Council on the funding for this program. Applications for funding are considered annually. Typically applications are due in December for funding during the fiscal year beginning the following July. If you would like to receive notice of available funding please submit your request to [email protected].

HOME Investment Partnerships

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.


The City received $2.24 million HOME-American Rescue Plan (HOME-ARP) funding from HUD. These funds must be used to assist individuals or households who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, and other vulernable populations, by providing housing, rental assistance, supportive services, and non-congregate shelter, to reduce homelessness and increase housing stability in Huntington Beach. Below is the HOME-ARP Allocation Plan describing how the $2.24 million HOME-ARP funds will be used.
