A home is more than four walls, floors, and a roof. Home is a place to grow, raise a family and find peace of mind. Everyone, no matter their financial situation, deserves a clean, safe, and beautiful place to live. The Housing Division provides low- to moderate-income residents with additional help when:

  • making repairs to an existing home, or
  • implementing green-building practices.

The Housing Division also works closely with other local agencies on affordable housing, to develop opportunities for eligible families through financial assistance loans.

  • 100% density bonus that exceeds State standards,
  • allowance of duplexes “by-right” in single-family residential zones,
  • streamlined project reviews, and
  • the Citywide Affordable Housing Development Fee Exemption Program, which reduces the financial burden of developing affordable housing.

Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Grants

The City receives annual grant funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As a requirement for receiving the funds, the City must collect input from the public on how to address community needs and develop a five-year consolidated plan. Following the development of the consolidated plan, the City is required to develop annual actions plans that detail the goals, objectives, and performance measures for specific programs that address the consolidated plan and utilize HUD funds. At the end of performance year, the City must report on the activities in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER), which describes the City's overall performance in meeting its goals and objectives for Federal Grant Entitlement Programs under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
