What is CDBG?

Each year, the City of Moreno Valley receives approximately $2 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to perform a wide range of activities aimed at benefitting its low-to-moderate income residents including neighborhood revitalization, street improvements, code enforcement and economic development.

Program Goals

CDBG activities must meet the Federal goals of developing viable urban communities by providing: (1) decent housing, (2) a suitable living environment, and (3) expanded economic opportunities. The majority (70%) of persons assisted with CDBG should be considered of low-to-moderate income limits.

CDBG Reports

  • Moreno Valley Section 3 Policy and Procedures Manual-2018
    The purpose of Section 3 is to ensure that employment and other economic opportunities generated by certain HUD financial assistance shall, to the greatest extent feasible, and consistent with existing Federal, State and local laws and regulations, be directed to Low- and Very Low- income persons, particularly those who are recipients of government assistance for housing, and to business concerns which provide economic opportunities to low- and very low- income persons.
  • 2018-2023 Consolidated Plan
    HUD requires entitlement communities to prepare a five-year planning document called the Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan addresses Moreno Valley's housing and community development needs.
  • 2017-2018 Annual Action Plan
    The Annual Action Plan serves as the annual update to the Consolidated Plan. It identifies specific projects, programs, and resources that will be implemented during the program year.

Becoming a CDBG Subgrantee

Non-profit agencies interested in receiving CDBG funds must submit a completed project application form to the Financial & Management Services Department, Financial Operations Division, in order to be considered. A Notice of Funding Availability is issued each year in December, with application typically due in January of each year. Applicants may be asked to provide a brief presentation and answer questions. A technical review will involve an evaluation of whether the project is sponsored by a reputable agency with non-profit status, holds a good track record, is financially feasible, and has a maintenance and operation commitment (if applicable). Please note that all organizations awarded CDBG funds (sub grantees) are required to comply with an outcome based performance measurement system. This includes monthly statistical reporting, but may also include gathering supplementary data and research.
