The 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.
