In 2018, the City of Jurupa Valley became an "entitlement City" for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. The CDBG Program is a grant funding effort administered by the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Before receiving entitlement City status, the City relied on the County of Riverside through a partnership arrangement to administer CDBG funds. Becoming an entitlement community gave the City more direct control over how incoming CDBG funds from the Federal government are spent.
The an annual basis, the CDBG program provides about $1.2 million in funding for the City to carryout projects in three areas: infrastructure, social services, and housing initiatives.
Consistent with the requirements of becoming an "entitlement" City with discretion over CDBG funds, the City was required to establish a Consolidated Plan, an Annual Action Plan, and a Citizen Participation Plan. In general, these planning documents broadly define how CDBG funds will be spent by the City. In 2018, the City received public input from local residents through survey, public meetings, and informal "town hall" style forums. The public input helped City staff created the planning documents.
