Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). The CDBG program was initiated by the Housing and Community Development Act (HCDA) of 1974. as a means to provide decent affordable housing, a suitable living environment, and economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income.
HOME. The HOME program focuses on affordable housing programs. In 2004, the City of Victorville and the Town of Apple Valley formed a HOME Consortium in order to meet the threshold of obtaining HOME entitlement status with HUD, which resulted in an annual allocation of funds to both communities. The Town of Apple Valley serves as the lead agency for coordinating the Consolidated Planning and submission process, while the City of Victorville serves as a participating jurisdiction. Each jurisdiction is responsible for administering its own CDBG program, while the Town of Apple Valley administers the HOME program for both jurisdictions. Each jurisdiction is also responsible for preparing its own Annual Action Plan and Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER).
Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). The NSP program was established for the purpose of stabilizing communities that have suffered from foreclosures and abandonment through the purchase and redevelopment of foreclosed and abandoned homes and residential properties.
Residential Rehabilitation Program. The Town of Apple Valley Community Development Department administers this program, using a combination of HOME Investment Partnership Programs (HOME), Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds and Department of Housing and Community Development CalHome funds. The RRLP guidelines require that all projects assisted must benefit low-income persons. Its goals are to improve the health and safety of residents living in substandard housing, prevent blight in residential neighborhoods, and to improve the structural integrity of the Town's housing stock.
