Housing grant programsThe City administers various federal and local grant programs to support affordable housing development and preservation. 

Community Development Block Grant and Home Investment Partnership

The City of Redwood City receives annual entitlements (grant funds) of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The CDBG program provides resources to address a wide range of community development needs principally for low-income households. CDBG is used to produce and/or preserve decent affordable housing, to provide services to the most vulnerable in our community, and to create jobs through the expansion and retention of businesses.

The HOME program is designed exclusively to create affordable housing for low-income households. It provides resources to that are used to fund a wide range of activities including building, buying, and/or rehabilitating affordable housing for rent or home-ownership assistance to low-income people.

Consolidated Plan

The Consolidated Plan is designed to help local jurisdictions assess their affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions. The consolidated planning process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from the two grant programs. The Consolidated Plan, which may have a duration of between 3 and 5 years, describes the City's community development priorities and multi-year goals based on an assessment of housing and community development needs, an analysis of housing and economic market conditions and available resources.
