Housing Division

The City of Merced Housing Division oversees several grants to help improve the housing quality within the City of Merced. In addition, mini-grants are provided annually to those non-profit organizations that provide programs pertaining to the Housing Division's Annual Report Goals.

Our Primary Funding is from the Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) Funds. The Housing Division administers CDBG and HOME funds in order to increase the supply of safe, decent, and affordable housing. These programs can include housing purchase or rehabilitation loans to local residents.

The Housing Division is also involved in community development and neighborhood revitalization. HOME funds can only be used for housing activities, while CDBG can be used for broader community development purposes within established guidelines. Community Activities selected are designed to reflect Annual Plan Goals and may include public service, neighborhood restoration, and renovation.
