Community Revitalization

About Us

Glendale, AZ - Fair HousingThe primary goal of the Community Revitalization Division is to provide affordable housing and housing rehabilitation assistance for eligible Glendale residents, which fosters a sense of pride in the community as well as enriches the quality of life for all Glendale residents. In addition, it oversees the City’s community development concerns.

The division achieves its housing and community development goals through the administration of the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG) programs.

  • CDBG funding provides support for public services, improvements to public facilities and infrastructure, and various other community development activities.
  • HOME funding allows the division to provide housing rehabilitation and infill housing programs for the preservation of the city’s existing housing stock and the generation of new housing.
  • ESG funds provide the resources to support homeless prevention and emergency shelter activities.

The City of Glendale has received more than $53 million in CDBG, HOME, and ESG since FY1977-78, which has helped thousands of citizens and leveraged millions in additional funds. These federal programs enable the Community Revitalization Division to produce valuable public services, improved neighborhood conditions, homeownership opportunities for low- and moderate-income individuals and families, and increased access to safe, decent, and sanitary housing. All the programs of Community Revitalization improve the clients’ quality of life.

FISCAL YEAR (FY) 2017-18


**Notice amended and republished to reflect May 9, 2017 Council meeting date**

The City of Glendale has developed an Annual Action Plan (AAP) that describes the proposed activities to be funded with FY 2017-18 CDBG, HOME and ESG entitlements. The AAP is part of the Five-Year Consolidated Plan covering the five years ending with FY 2019-2020, and addresses strategic implementation for Glendale.

In addition, the Maricopa HOME Consortium (HOME Consortium), comprised of the Cities of Avondale, Chandler, Glendale, Peoria, Scottsdale, Surprise, and Tempe, the Town of Gilbert, and the County of Maricopa, will prepare and submit an AAP for the HOME Program.

The Annual Action Plans must be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on or before May 15, 2017. The Glendale City Council intends to conduct a public hearing regarding the City’s proposed AAP at the May 9, 2017, City Council meeting, at 7:00 p.m. Maricopa County will hold a separate public hearing on the HOME Consortium’s proposed AAP.

Glendale’s CDBG entitlement for FY 2017-18 will be approximately $2,200,786. The total amount of CDBG funding available will be used to fund eligible activities in FY 2017-18.

The City of Glendale’s HOME allocation for FY 2017-18 will be approximately $514,115. The AAP for the Maricopa HOME Consortium contains information on the activities that will be funded during FY 2017-18.

Glendale’s ESG entitlement for FY 2017-18 will be approximately $189,758 and will be used to assist with the prevention of homelessness, and to assist homeless individuals and families to move toward independent living.

The actual funding amounts are not yet known. The amounts allocated in the Annual Action Plan will be adjusted proportionally based on HUD’s final allocations to the City and to the Maricopa HOME Consortium.

A competitive grant application process was conducted during FY 2016-17. Certain eligible activities have been recommended for funding by the Community Development Advisory Committee (CDAC). These activities will meet one of the following national objectives:

24 CFR 570.208(a): Assist low- and moderate-income residents (L/M)
24 CFR 570.208(b): Aid in the prevention or elimination of slum and blight (S/B)
24 CFR 576.21(a)(3): Aid in homeless prevention, emergency shelter, street outreach, rapid rehousing, and HMIS.
24 CFR 92.205 HOME Final Rule - Assist low- and moderate-income residents with affordable housing assistance

In addition, Glendale will also demonstrate compliance with the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act, at Section 101 by certifying that not less than 70% of the funds awarded to activities will be spent for the benefit of low- and moderate-income residents over a one-year period (Fiscal Year 2017-18).
