Each year, Escalon receives an annual allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Program funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to assist low and moderate income persons, provide decent housing, a suitable living environment and/or expand economic opportunities.  These funds are allocated by HUD utilizing a formula which considers population, poverty, overcrowded units, and age of housing.  The City estimates its 2019-2020 allocation will be as follows:

 

CDBG             $74,000                       HOME            $  9,300

 

There may also be some reallocations from previous years funding that will be allocated at this time.

The application is available in WORD format.  Printed applications can be obtained from the City’s Community Development Department by calling (209) 691-7430.

The completed applications will be reviewed by City staff to determine whether the proposed activity meets HUD’s national objectives and the City’s community development objectives.  Furthermore, the proposed activity will be reviewed for compliance with HUD program eligibility criteria.  All proposals that meet these requirements, will then be reviewed by the County for adherence to the County’s 2015-2020 Consolidated Plan.  The City will then recommend to the City Council which proposals should be funded.  All applicants will be notified in writing of funding recommendations in February 2019.  Funds allocated as part of this process will not be available until July 2019.  Program funds are not available to individuals.
