The City of Long Beach is developing the next five-year (2023-2027) Consolidated Plan (Plan) and we want you to be a part of this important process. This is an opportunity for residents to help the City determine which housing, community and economic development projects and activities should be prioritized for federal funding. Whether it’s for building more affordable housing, providing assistance to small businesses, sponsoring programs for youth, improving parks or helping with neighborhood clean-ups, this funding will provide expanded opportunities for qualified areas of the city.

The City of Long Beach receives three types of funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD): Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) on a non-competitive, entitlement basis. 

The Plan outlines and prioritizes the use of these funds and identifies activities to address the City's housing, community and economic development needs. The Plan also describes the City's strategy to develop viable communities by promoting integrated approaches that provide decent housing, a suitable living environment and expand economic opportunities for low- and moderate-income persons.
