What is CDBG? 

Each year the City of Chino Hills receives approximately $300,000 of
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from HUD for local community development, housing activities, and public services.  The City administers the distribution of funds to service providers and for capital
projects.  Regulations governing the CDBG program require that each
activity undertaken with CDBG funds meet one of the following three
national objectives:

  • Benefit people with low and moderate incomes
  • Aid in the prevention or elimination of slums and blight
  • Meet an urgent need (such as earthquakes, flood, or hurricane relief)


NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Chino Hills is making available applications for the 2020-21 CDBG program year. Pursuant to federal regulations, up to 15% of these funds may be eligible for public service projects that are new and/or expand priority community service needs. Any nonprofit public service organization, including faith-based organizations, meeting the federal guidelines, can submit a project funding application. If you are interested in competing for CDBG 2020-2021 program funds an application workshop will be held in conjunction with the City of Chino, on Wednesday, December 18, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. at the Carolyn Owens Community Center--University Hall, 13201 Central Avenue, Chino.
