Consolidated Plan Contact



The Consolidated Plan is a document required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in order to apply for funding under the following programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG), and some competitive grant programs like the McKinney Supportive Housing Program. The purpose of the Consolidated Plan (CP) is to assess the housing and community development needs of the residents and community of Santa Clarita and to identify, coordinate, plan and implement a strategy to meet our housing and community development needs over the next five years. The lead agency responsible for the preparation and implementation of the CP is the City of Santa Clarita Community Development Block Grant Program Division.

Action Plan

The City of Santa Clarita submitted as part of the Consolidated Plan process 10 programs/projects to be funded with $991,000 in CDBG Funds for the 1995-96 Program Year. Program and project funding levels are listed later in this summary.

Citizen Participation

Community participation and outreach was undertaken in the City of Santa Clarita to obtain public input to assist in formulating the City's housing and community development strategy presented within the CP. Pursuant to Federal public participation regulations, meetings were scheduled in different locations throughout the City as a means to bring the CP public participation process closer to City residents. The City held three public meetings and held a public hearing, before the City Council on May 23, 1995. The City of Santa Clarita consulted with key City Departments in the development of the CP including Parks, Recreation and Community Services, Community Development, and Finance. As part of the public participation process, the City contacted over 40 public-private agencies in the development of the City's CP.

Community Profile

The City of Santa Clarita was Incorporated December 15, 1987. It is located approximately 35 miles northwest of the Los Angeles Civic Center. Current Municipal boundaries encompass approximately 42.32 square miles of land. The topography of the City varies from the flat lands of the valley floor, to canyons which bisect the community. The steep hillsides marking the foothills of the San Gabriel and Santa Susanna mountains bordering the rim of the valley. Situated within the "V" formed by two freeways, the City is bounded on the southwest by the Golden State Freeway (Interstate I-5) and on the southeast by the Antelope Valley Freeway (State Route Hwy-14), which borders the National Forest boundary to the south and approaches to within one mile of the National Forest to the north and east. In 1990, the City of Santa Clarita was the seventh largest City, in terms of population in the County of Los Angeles with a population of 122,914 in 1993.


Newhall was the earliest permanent settlement in the Valley. This area was established in 1876 in conjunction with the construction of the Southern Pacific Railroad. This area was a typical western town of oil, mining, and railroad workers. Newhall was also the residence of silent film star William S. Hart, whose 300-acre ranch currently serves as a County park, museum, and tourist attraction visited annually by thousands.


The community of Valencia is part of the original 37,500-acre Newhall Ranch which was a Mexican land grant currently owned by the Newhall Land and Farming Company. Named after its sister city in Spain, Valencia was dedicated in 1967 and developed as a master planned community. Residential, commercial, and industrial developments form the basic community structure.


Established in 1887, Saugus , named for the birthplace of founder Henry Mayo Newhall. This community also owes its existence to the Southern Pacific Railroad. The Saugus Speedway is a popular motor racing attraction and the site of Saugus' famous Sunday Swap Meet. This property was originally designed in 1924 as a rodeo arena. The last great train robbery in the state took place behind the speedway in 1928. Located next to the Speedway is the Santa Clarita Metrolink Station, opened in October 1992, and provides commuter train service to Burbank, Glendale and downtown Los Angeles.

Canyon Country

With more than 30,000 residents, Canyon Country has the largest population of any community in the City. Canyon Country includes the area along Soledad Canyon Road east of Saugus and the neighborhoods of Sand Canyon and Friendly Valley. It contains a wide range of housing types. These include large-lot single-family custom homes, single-family tract homes, multiple-family developments, and mobile home parks. This community also hosts the retirement village of Friendly Valley.

Placerita Canyon

Placerita Canyon, a sub-community of Newhall, is a rural and oak-studded residential area northeast of downtown Newhall. Equestrian-oriented residential areas placed among oak woodlands typify most of the development in the area. A substantial amount of new home construction has occurred in recent years. Oil fields are located in the eastern portion of the canyon, west of the Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14). East of the freeway, Placerita Canyon is predominantly undeveloped, with much of the land under ownership of the Angeles National Forest. Placerita Canyon is home to the Master's College, the Golden Oak (Disney Movie) Ranch, Gene Autry's Melody Ranch (site of the famous singing cowboy's weekly 1950's television show), and Placerita Canyon State Park and Nature Center.

Demographic Overview

The City per capita income is higher than the national per capita income. As a percentage of population, the City has few families below the poverty line. Table 9 Income and Poverty Status in 1989 of the 1990 Census Summary of Social, Economic and Housing Characteristics identifies the City per capita income in 1989 as $20,874. In the City of Santa Clarita, 605 families or 2.1% of all families in the City, were below the poverty level. Santa Clarita is an affluent community with a median family income of $57,830. Eighty percent of the households have an income considered moderate or better. Analysis of income levels based on race shows a similarity in income levels between White, Black and Asian/Pacific Islander households. Another exists between Hispanic and Native American households. 81% of the White and Black, 78% of the Asian/Pacific Islander, 61% of the Hispanic, and 63% of the Native American households in the City have moderate or better incomes. Conversely, 19% of the White and Black, 22% of the Asian/Pacific Islander, 34% of Hispanic, and 37% of Native American households are low or very low income. Based upon this information, there is greater need for affordable housing to serve the Hispanic and Native American households. These account for 3,850 of all households in the City. (Source: CHAS Data Book, Table 1, Parts 1 and 2).

Race/Ethnic Population Characteristics

The population of Santa Clarita is predominantly White, according to both 1980 and 1990 Census statistics. The City's population in 1990 was 117,773, comprised of 80% White, 13.5% Hispanic, 4% Asian/Pacific Islander, 1.5% Black, and .5% Native American. Although the number of nonwhite persons increased at a faster rate compared to the white population, nonwhites accounted for just less than 20% of the City population. All races recognized by the Census are represented in the City of Santa Clarita. Persons with Hispanic background are the largest minority group in the City of Santa Clarita and represent 13.4% of the population. The Hispanic population increased by an estimated 29.8% between 1980 and 1988. Historically, there has been a strong Hispanic population base in the Newhall area. In 1990, the population of Hispanics in each Census tract ranged from a low of 7.3% in Tract 9203.22 in Valencia, to a high of 33.2% in Tract 9203.11 in Newhall. No other racial/ethnic group in the City exists in any mass concentration. The 1990 population patterns by race are consistent with the pre-existing settlement pattern.


White 95,069 80.7%
Hispanic 15,582 13.2%
Asian/Pacific Islander 4,654 4.0%
Black 1,765 1.5%
American Indian 544 0.5%
Other 159 0.1%

Areas of Racial/Ethnic Concentration

The City of Santa Clarita has one Census Tract which exceeds 30% race/ethnic minority concentration. This is Census Tract 9203.11 in Newhall which has a minority population concentration of 39.4%. No other Census Tracts in the City approach this level of minority concentration. The next highest minority concentration is 25.8% in Census Tract 9200.21 in Canyon Country. In both of these areas, Hispanics are the predominant ethnic minority. (Source: Census of Population and Housing, 1990 Summary Tape File 1 Machine-readable Data File).

Areas of Low-Income Concentration

There are several other low income areas in the City. These low income areas include Census block groups 9203.11 BG 1 and 2 and 9203.12 BG 4 and 9 in Newhall, Census block group 9200.11 BG 6 in Saugus, Census block group 9200.23, BG 3 and 9108.01 BG 1 in Canyon Country, and Census block group 9201.01 BG 2 in North Valencia. There are two Census block groups in the City which are low-moderate income areas. This determination is based on the national HUD standard of 51% or more concentration of low-moderate income persons within the block group. These two block groups are 9203.11BG 2 with 62.45% low-moderate and 9203.12 BG 9 with 100% low-moderate. (Source: File notes Newhall Study, August 1993).

Economic and Demographic Trends in the Community

The City of Santa Clarita is considered a safe and desirable community in which to live and raise a family. In April 1993, the City was named the fourth safest City in the United States among populations of 100,000. In May 1995, Santa Clarita was the 5th safest city. This recognition was received from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Economically, the Santa Clarita Valley is experiencing the same economic difficulty as is the rest of Southern California. However, according to the City of Santa Clarita Economic Development Community Profile, the largest employers in the Santa Clarita Valley are Six Flags Magic Mountain, Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, and the William S. Hart Unified School District. In September 1992, the Valencia Town Center opened providing local jobs and increasing the tax-base of the City. Military cut-backs and the relocation of defense and aerospace industry from Southern California has had a large impact upon the City of Santa Clarita. Most notable was the closing of the Lockheed complex in Burbank.


Housing Market Conditions


Santa Clarita underwent a residential building boom during the mid to late-eighties which impacted all areas of the City. Due to the availability of affordable housing within the community, many families were attracted to the Santa Clarita Valley. This resulted in a doubling of the population between the 1980 and 1990 Census. Over 50% of the housing stock in the City was built after 1980.


Since 1992, the development of new residential units has come to almost a standstill due to the recession. The selling price of single family homes has dropped 9% between July 1992 and June 1993. However, according to the Santa Clarita Valley Association of Realtors, the values are anticipated to rise. This will happen as the Southern California economy recovers from the current recession, and from the effects of the January 1994 Northridge Earthquake. For the quarter of January to April, 1994, the average selling price of a single family home in the City was $185,417.

General Market and Inventory

In the City of Santa Clarita and surrounding areas there is a demand for more affordable housing along with a strong desire to live in the City because of the local amenities. In Santa Clarita, which is similar to other urbanizing areas, there is a direct relationship between employment, housing and population. Overall housing costs are less expensive than in surrounding areas because of the availability of land. According to the Santa Clarita Valley Association of Realtors, from January to April 1995, the average selling price of a single family home in the City was $185,417.

Housing Market Conditions

The City of Santa Clarita had 41,133 total year-round housing units in 1990 according to 1990 Census Data. Of these units, 38,474 units are occupied and 2,659 units are vacant. The vacancy rate for rental units in the City is 11.25% which indicates that there is no shortage of housing units in the City. Renters fill 9,342 units and owners occupy 29,132 units (source: 1993 CHAS). The majority of housing units in the City are three bedrooms or larger, accounting for 58.7% of the housing stock in the City. Among rentals, two bedroom units are the most common and account for 42% of the rental stock.

Housing Stock Condition

The housing stock in the City of Santa Clarita is in good condition. Most of the housing is relatively new with over 50% of the housing units being constructed since 1980. There are isolated substandard conditions throughout the City. Yet, deterioration of the housing stock is most notable in two Census tracts in Newhall. This area also has the oldest housing stock in the City.

Affordable Housing Needs

There is a demonstrated need for housing to serve low and very low-income families in the City of Santa Clarita. Based on CHAS and 1990 Census data, 11% of the City's households are very low-income and another 9% are other low income. Housing problems are defined as housing costs which exceed 30% of gross household income and are an indicator of housing affordability in the community. For all low and moderate households who rent, 47% have housing problems. The largest group of low and moderate renters with housing problems are the large related households. 67% of low and moderate large related households who rent have a housing problem. The next largest rental group with a housing burden are elderly households with 54%. Of the 29,593 low and moderate households who own their own units, 41% have a housing problem. Efforts to rehabilitate existing housing are being undertaken in order to improve this situation. Finally, there exists a need to research the feasibility/possibility of purchasing mobile home parks located within the City, as a means to better address our affordable housing needs.

Very Low-Income Families

88% of the small related households and 100% of the large related households with very low incomes who rent have a housing problem. There are 259 small and 42 large households with very low incomes of 30% or less who rent in the City. For those very low income households with 31 to 50% MFI, 95% of the small related households and 100% of the large related households have housing problems. There are 406 small and 150 large related households who rent in this category. Families tend to rent larger units which have higher rents, necessitating a need to provide more affordable housing opportunities for very low-income families who rent. For owners, 77% of the very low income with less than 30% MFI have housing problems. For owners with 31 to 50% MFI, the amount of housing problems varies with 55% of the elderly and 80% of all others having housing problems. There are, 1,764 elderly owners and 1,156 other owners with very low income of 0 to 50% MFI. Substantially fewer elderly owners in this income category have housing problems than other owners.

Homeless Needs

From the homeless information gathered from the Sheriff's Department, City Code Enforcement Officers, and community organizations, there appear to be several types of homeless population in the City of Santa Clarita. Estimated numbers of homeless are around 60 persons within City limits. One set of homeless are migrant farm workers who become stranded in Santa Clarita while on their way to temporary work destinations. It is typical to see these homeless living in vehicles and their stay in the City of Santa Clarita is short-term. The second type of homeless are those who construct dwellings with the intent to live there for extended periods.

Nature and Extent of Homeless Families

The Department of Public Social Services has noted that there are a large number of families who apply for help with housing. These families have no visible means of support and would be homeless without support of family and friends or vouchers for temporary shelter from DPSS. The Sheriff's Department did not identify family groups by number.

Public and Assisted Housing Needs

Number of Public Housing Units

The only public housing complex in the City is Orchard Arms. Orchard Arms serves low-income elderly and disabled residents. Based on a May 1995 survey, Orchard Arms reports that of the 182 single-bedroom apartments in the complex, there are no vacant units available. The units at Orchard Arms are in good condition and there are no substandard units or rehabilitation needs at that facility. Apartments are already modified to serve the disabled as well as the elderly. In addition, the City of Santa Clarita participates in the Section 8-Rental Assistance Program through the County of Los Angeles Housing Authority. Section 8 is a federally funded program administered by HUD. It enables low and very-low income persons to receive housing assistance by supplementing the rent that is affordable to the tenants (30% of income). The supplemental payment is made directly to the landlord. According to the Community Development Commission of Los Angeles, the total number of Section 8 contracts in the City are 273 as of May 22, 1995. Of these, 136 contracts are for elderly households. All of these are renter households.

Assisted Housing for Seniors

There are two HUD subsidized privately owned Senior Housing Complexes within the City of Santa Clarita. These are Valencia Villa and Newhall Terrace which are operated in conformance with HUD guidelines. These HUD Section 8 subsidized Senior Housing Complexes rent for 30% of the tenant's income minus an allowance for utilities (except telephone).

HUD Section 811

The Los Angeles Retarded Citizens' Foundation (LARC) received a Section 811 grant in September 1992. This grant was requested to purchase land and construct a five bedroom home in the City of Santa Clarita. This home would house up to eight developmentally disabled adults. LARC is needed to serve a specific population of more fragile adults. The cost of the project is estimated to exceed the Section 818 grant by approximately $150,000.

Barriers to Affordable Housing

There are governmental and non-governmental constraints to the development of affordable housing in Santa Clarita. These barriers result in higher housing costs or limit development and thereby discourage development of affordable housing. Constraints to housing production have more impact on lower income and special needs persons because they often cannot afford market- rate housing. By identifying constraints to housing development, the City will be able to develop programs to counteract their negative impacts or eliminate them, if possible.

Fair Housing

The City's CDBG program provides fair housing services to City residents, assisting principally low and moderate income residents if they are confronted by housing discrimination. The City will be taking the following measures to address this effort. First, the City will create and publish bi-lingual directory of local social service providers and attempt to enhance the communication among agencies to provide a more efficient delivery of housing and support services to residents. Next, the City will increase public awareness of available resources by providing education and outreach with the Fair Housing Council. Third, the City will facilitate the development, conservation and rehabilitation of affordable housing by encouraging and coordinating public, private, non-profit, and for-profit entities involved in affordable housing related activities. Fourth, the City's community service grant program will be expended to provide funds to social service agencies as a means to broaden the level and type of services provided by the City to the community. Finally, the City will participate with the various public service agencies to share information, resources, strategies and coordination as we seek to address our housing needs.

Lead-Based Paint (LBP) Hazard Reduction


Santa Clarita has a need for lead-hazard free housing. The City will address the problem of LBP hazard by establishing a program for evaluating and reducing lead hazards during repair and renovation of older housing stock. A public information campaign to warn people about the need to maintain buildings which may contain LBP, as well as other programs to encourage home maintenance, will aid in mitigating LBP hazards in the City of Santa Clarita. The City also provides rehabilitation of housing through the CDBG Handyworker program. This program aids in correcting substandard conditions which contribute to LBP hazards. The City will also encourage land owners, especially owners of units where children live, to correct substandard conditions to minimize LBP hazards. The City includes information about the hazards posed by LBP as part of the Department of Building and Safety community outreach program which places information pamphlets in building supply stores.

Community Development Needs

The City is implementing a number of programs and projects to address the community development needs of the community. Capital projects to build needed infrastructure like curbs, sidewalks and community parks are all being funded in this year's CDBG budget. Recently completed capital projects in the East Newhall area of the City now enable us to move forward to addressing similar needs in other areas of the City. Also included in our capital projects are flood improvements within the Newhall Creek being jointly funded and constructed with the U.S. Dept. Of Agriculture to protect the adjacent neighborhoods along the creekbank from flood damages.


Increase contact, coordination, and improved service delivery systems for the various programs and services provided to area residents. Establish quarterly meetings to identify trends, problems and resources among agencies. Assist agencies in applying for grant funds as a means to increase services provided to the community. Track the numbers of residents serviced in order to determine level of accomplishment in this area. Expand efforts in education, Headstart Program, assist working parents through pre-school creation/support (child care resources).

Strategic Plan

Housing and Community Development Priorities

1. Rehabilitation of Low Income Owned and Rental Housing Units

The City will encourage, implement and provide for the rehabilitation of low and moderate income rental and housing units through the City's Residential Rehabilitation Loan Program and the Handyworker Program. As a result of the January 1994 earthquake, the City seeks to address the damages and effects of the earthquake upon these housing units located throughout the City. Coupled with the various earthquake funds obtained by the City, significant efforts to address housing rehabilitation efforts will be undertaken on a citywide basis.

2. Rehabilitation of Units for Special Needs Populations

Special needs populations like the frail elderly are within the low income category and need housing assistance to meet their rehabilitation needs. A rental rehabilitation program which provides for the modification of rental units to accommodate this population is needed to better serve this population.

3. Upgrade Infrastructure and Services in Low Income Areas

The construction of improvements in Newhall is an important priority for bringing this neighborhood up to community standards enjoyed elsewhere within the City. Through infrastructure upgrades, residents will see significant improvement in the maintenance and appearance of their neighborhoods. This will contribute to and stimulate the common community desire to increase neighborhood pride and ownership.

4. Encourage Very Low and Low Income Senior Rental Housing

The City will seek to encourage and facilitate the construction of very low and low income senior rental housing. Working with private developers for the construction of these units and seeking funding sources at the Federal, State and Local levels are efforts that will be undertaken to provide for the housing needs of seniors. The 1995-96 Action Plan illustrates steps to address this need.

5. Improving the Accessibility to Existing Rental Subsidy Programs (Section 8 Certificates and Vouchers).

Public outreach is needed to inform City residents of what services and facilities are available to them in the area of affordable housing. Presently, it takes several years for City residents to receive certificates and vouchers for housing subsidies and an additional several months to locate a suitable housing unit. The Section 8 voucher and certificate program aid low income, renter, elderly and families; those who have been identified as carrying the greatest housing burden. These programs utilize the City's existing housing stock, thereby reducing the vacancy rate. The City will continue working with the County of Los Angeles to improve Section 8 processing and encourage private utilization of existing housing units into the Section 8 housing pool.

6. Emergency Services for All Homeless Persons

The City will continue to work with community social service groups interested in providing services to the homeless population of the City. There are constraints the City faces in responding to the needs of the homeless, such as lack of sufficient funds, no identified location for a homeless facility, and lack of community support. The City will seek to work with community groups interested in providing resources and services to better address the needs of our homeless population whether or not these services are located within the City.

7. Increase Coordination of Housing and Other Related Support Services and Facilities.

The City places a strong emphasis on the coordination and support of housing services to City residents. First, the City will create and publish bi-lingual directory of local social service providers and attempt to enhance the communication among agencies to provide a more efficient delivery of housing and support services to residents. Next, the City will increase public awareness of available resources by providing education and outreach. The Fair Housing Council of the San Fernando Valley will continue to provide residents with information on their housing rights and a recourse for handling housing disputes. Third, the City will facilitate the development, conservation and rehabilitation of affordable housing by encouraging and coordinating public, private, non-profit, and for-profit entities involved in affordable housing related activities. Fourth, the City's community service grant program will be expended to provide funds to social service agencies as a means to broaden the level and type of services provided by the City to the community. Finally, the City will participate with the various public service agencies to share information, resources, strategies and coordination as we seek to address our housing needs.

Barriers to Affordable Housing

The City will continue, as a priority in this Consolidated Plan, to address the barriers to affordable housing through the encouragement of policies which favor the maintenance and development of affordable housing stock and supply, while maintaining and enhancing neighborhood quality. Coordination and implementation of housing policies and programs are efforts the City will continue to pursue.

First Time Homebuyer Assistance

Many young low and moderate income families cannot afford the down payments and interest rates charged by banks required for the purchase of a home. The City Council and community have recognized that this is a need within the community and that the encouragement of programs like down payment assistance, mortgage assistance, and /or sweat equity programs will be supported on a citywide basis. Accordingly, the City participates in the Mortgage Credit Certificate program which contributes efforts to this community goal.

Housing for Low Income Families

The City will continue to work with various Federal, State, and County jurisdictions to address the housing needs of our low income families. By improving Section 8 accessibility, assisting the Department of Social Services, the City will work toward providing suitable housing facilities for low income families. In the absence of a Housing Authority, the continued dependence and reliance on the County's Section 8 program seems to be the only method to provide monthly subsidies for rent payments to low income and elderly households. Finally, the City will explore opportunities such as "sweat-equity" to provide increased numbers of low income housing to families in this population group.

Anti-Poverty Strategy

In 1989 there were 4,045 people, or 3.7% of the City's population, living in poverty (Source: 1990 Census, Summary of Social, Economic, and Housing Characteristics, Table 10). Of these people, 959 were under 18 years old and 455 were 65 years and over. There were 639 below the poverty line. This accounts for 2.2% of all families in the City. In 1989 the per capita income was $21,073. While the City has no control over the majority of factors affecting poverty, it may be able to assist those living below the poverty line. The City will aid those with very low incomes through referral to appropriate agencies. The City will pursue affordable housing policies to make housing available for these people. The City will support other government, private and non-profit agencies involved in providing services to the poor. The City will coordinate efforts with these other groups where possible to allow for more efficiency.

Institutional Structure Development, Coordination of Strategic Plan

The City of Santa Clarita has worked with a wide range of public and community social service agencies in efforts to meet and address the various needs of the community. The City of Santa Clarita has two full time staff members working within the Community Development Block Grant Program. This program implements the majority of City Housing programs, however, agencies like the Los Angeles County Community Development Commission (CDC) are contracted to administer the Section 8 program. The CDC provides housing services for 61 cities and the County of Los Angeles. The City also works with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, State Housing Finance Agencies and Human Service Agencies. The Department of Public Social Services provides the Homeless Assistance Program for homeless families, operates Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), Medi-Cal, and the food stamp program for low income person in the Santa Clarita Valley. The Department of Rehabilitation and the North Los Angeles County Regional Center assists those with disabilities with training, and the Department of Mental Health assists the mentally ill with out-patient care, referrals and prescription services.

Non-Profit/ Private Industry Organizations

The City works with a number of organizations including non-profit developers, social service providers, housing and counseling agencies and property managers. The Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center provides various housing services for seniors. Services for the disabled are provided by LARC Ranch, Industries, and Jay Nolan Community Services. The Santa Clarita Service Center, Association to Aid Victims of Domestic Violence, and the Santa Clarita Valley Child and Family Development Center are examples of other non-profit agencies operating in the City, which provide assistance to low income residents. Also, area public schools are an important resource to the City. The City works with the business community including lenders, financial institutions, contractors, corporations and developers. There are many private industries which provide housing and related services to low income, elderly, and special needs residents in the City of Santa Clarita. Examples of these private industries are the Independent Living Center of Southern California, Southern California Presbyterian Homes and Pleasantview Industries.

Housing and Community Development Resources

The City of Santa Clarita is an entitlement grant community recipient of Community Development Block Grant funds. This funding source has allowed the City to bring into the community programs which assist and benefit predominantly persons of low and moderate income. The programs offered through the City's CDBG program help to provide suitable living environments and conditions for City residents. The following programs are offered in CDBG: Fair Housing, Social Services, Senior Services, Handyworker, Mobile Dental Lab, Health/Medical Services, Infrastructure Improvements and an "at risk" youth program, SANE CAMP. The City has been eligible to receive CDBG funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development since Fiscal Year 1991-92. The City anticipates and is approved for, approximately $991,000 in CDBG funding for the 1995-96 Program Year. These funds will allow the City to expand the number of services we provide in CDBG and help to better address the housing and community development needs of this community. Furthermore, the City has received approximately $5.5 million for CDBG emergency supplemental appropriation, of which $2,250,000 will be used for a Residential Rehabilitation Program, $750,000 for commercial assistance, $750,000 for public facilities and improvements, with the remaining balance going into Administration and Program Planning. Also, $1.5 million in State HOME funds will be used to provide rehabilitation to owner occupied single family dwellings throughout the City.
