The City of Long Beach is an entitlement jurisdiction for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) HOME Investment Partnership Program, and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds. For more information on these grants, please see the Housing and Urban Development page.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) consolidated the planning and application process of HUD-funded grant programs in 1995 to coordinate program requirements and simplify the process of requesting and obtaining federal funds through what is now called the Consolidated Plan. The current Consolidated Plan covers the period of October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2022 (described in fiscal years as FY18 - FY22). It describes the City's plan to create a viable urban community which offers decent affordable housing, a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, especially for low and moderate income persons. The activities the City will undertake to achieve its stated objectives are described in this document, which was approved by the Long Beach City Council and HUD in 2017.
