Applying for a Grant

Non-profit agencies interested in receiving grant funds must submit a completed project application form to the Financial & Management Services Department, Financial Operations Division, to be considered.

A Notice of Funding Availability is issued each year in December, with application typically due in January of each year. Applicants may be asked to provide a brief presentation and answer questions. A technical review evaluates whether the project is sponsored by a reputable agency with non-profit status, holds a good track record, is financially feasible, and, if applicable, has a maintenance and operation commitment.

Please note that all organizations awarded grant funds (sub grantees) are required to comply with an outcome-based performance measurement system. This includes monthly statistical reporting, but may also include gathering supplementary data and research.

CDBG Grants

The purpose of the CDBG program is to enhance and maintain viable urban communities through the provision of decent housing and a suitable living environment and the expansion of economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons.

Each year, the City of Moreno Valley receives approximately $2 million in CDBG funds to perform a wide range of activities benefitting low-to-moderate income residents. These activities include neighborhood revitalization, street improvements, code enforcement and economic development. 

CDBG activities must meet the Federal goals of developing viable urban communities by providing: decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities. The majority (70%) of persons assisted with CDBG should be considered of low-to-moderate income limits. See the List of Eligible and Ineligible Activities for details.


HOME Grants

The Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) was created by the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990 (NAHA). The purpose of the HOME program is:

  • To expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing, primarily rental housing.
  • To strengthen the ability of state and local government to provide housing.
  • To assure that federal housing services, financing, and other investments are provided to state and local governments in a coordinated, supportive fashion.
  • To expand the capacity of nonprofit community based housing development organizations (CHDOs).
  • To leverage private sector participation in financing affordable housing

What are CHDOs?

A Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) is a not-for-profit, community-based service organization with the capacity to develop affordable housing for the community it serves.
