Community Development Block Grant
The City's Housing Division in the Community Development Department administers the City's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, which is federally funded by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The program allows the City to fund a variety of housing and community/economic development projects that benefit low- to moderate-income (LMI) citizens.
HOME Investment Partnerships
The Home Investment Partnerships Program(HOME) is the largest federal block grant to state and local governments designed exclusively to create affordable housing for low-income households. The intent of the HOME program is to provide decent affordable housing to lower-income households, expand the capacity of nonprofit housing providers, strengthen the ability of the state and local governments to provide housing, and leverage private sector participation in housing projects.
Emergency Solutions Grants
The Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program supports outreach and shelters for homeless individuals and families who have been living on the streets and other places not meant for people to live. The ESG program also supports programs that prevent or rapidly re-house homeless Santa Ana residents.
