The City of Chino Hills is offering up to $5,000 in home improvement grants to homeowners who meet income eligibility requirements. Limited funding is available. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). The property owner must have lived in, and owned the home, for at least one year. The gross annual household income may not exceed 80% of the San Bernardino County median income, adjusted for family size.
A household of four with a gross annual income of no more than $60,250 would qualify. Projects, including ramps or other improvements that aid the mobility of seniors or persons with physical disabilities, general repairs, and home improvements may also qualify. Typical projects include: exterior paint, roof repair, exterior structural repairs, concrete driveways, fencing, drainage/septic systems, door/window replacement, and garage door repairs. Each property is eligible for one grant.
Application and information packets are available on the City’s website. Additional information can also be found at the Community Services Department on the second floor at Chino Hills City Hall, located at 14000 City Center Drive. City staff will review the initial application to determine eligibility based upon income level and need.
