General Information

(Last updated August 08, 2014)

The City's HUD Programs Administration Office in the Economic Development Division 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 citizens. Information on current and past projects funded, as well as additional resources to learn more about the program may be found below.

In addition to the CDBG program, the HUD Programs Administration Office also coordinates with the San Diego Housing Commission and the County of San Diego to administer the following HUD entitlement programs covered by the City's Consolidated Plan (PDF):

  • 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. The San Diego Housing Commission administers this program for the City per a Memorandum of Understanding.
  • The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Program is an entitlement grant program that assists local communities in developing affordable housing opportunities and related supportive services for low-income person(s) living with HIV/AIDS. HOPWA-eligible activities include: direct housing, support services, information and referral, resource identification, technical assistance, and administration expenses. The County of San Diego administers this program for the City per a Memorandum of Understanding.
  • 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 San Diegans. The San Diego Housing Commission administers this program for the City per a Memorandum of Understanding.
