Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
Our City staff administers the Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs in collaboration with local community groups and City Council.
Publications & Reports
As a participating jurisdiction and entitlement community, the City of Visalia receives federal formula grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This entitlement provides eligible metropolitan cities and urban counties with annual direct grants: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) funds. Grant Funds are intended to provide decent housing and a suitable living environment, and to expand economic opportunities primarily for low-and moderate income households.
As a condition of receiving federal funds, HUD requires entitlement jurisdictions to prepare a five-year Consolidated Plan, a yearly Action Plan and a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). To learn more about the use of these funds, we encourage you to review these and other program-related reports.
The City partners with non-profit agencies in providing affordable rental housing opportunities. Click on the above link to view a few of our most recent joint projects and their website links for more information about their programs.
