Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), and Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG)
The primary objective of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), and the Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) Programs is to develop viable communities, decent housing and expand economic opportunities for low and moderate income persons living within the City of Ontario.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) mandates cities that are entitled to receive HUD funds (CDBG, HOME and ESG) to consolidate the submission requirements for such programs and prepare a planning document. The result is the Five-Year Consolidated Plan that identifies the City of Ontario’s overall housing and community development needs and outlines a strategy to address those needs. The City submits the One-Year Action Plan as a component of the Five-Year Consolidated Plan that highlights the specific programs and projects to be implemented during the program year. All CDBG, HOME, and ESG activities and funding allocations are detailed within these plans. In addition, the City submits the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) on an annual basis, which describes the progress the City has made towards achieving the affordable housing and community development goals outlined in the Five-Year Consolidated Plan.
