Moreno Valley is accepting applications for federal grants meant to help low and moderate-income residents or neighborhoods.
City officials expect to receive a little more than $2 million in community development block grant funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, according to a statement.
They are also anticipating approximately $692,000 in HOME Investment Partnerships Program funding and roughly $183,000 in Emergency Solutions Grants Program funding for the fiscal year 2021-2022.
Besides helping residents and neighborhoods, the money can be used to build affordable housing and reduce homelessness.
“This is a great example of the benefits of local control,” explained Dr. Yxstian Gutierrez, Mayor of Moreno Valley. “It allows cities to decide what works best for their residents and community.”
Applications will only be accepted from 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations and government entities. Individuals are not eligible under federal guidelines to apply and directly receive this funding.
Moreno Valley will accept applications online through January 29, 2021, viaPlanet Bids.
