Grants to California nonprofit housing and community development organizations for services to benefit low-income people in eligible regions and for Coronavirus (COVID-19) recovery efforts. Programs must benefit low to moderate-income persons or households in the City of Thousand Oaks.

The City of Thousand Oaks is inviting interested parties to assist in identifying the unmet needs of lower-income persons and households in Thousand Oaks that could potentially be addressed with a portion of the City’s annual Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) entitlement funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development or by using other Federal resources depending on the priority of need and the availability of funds. Non-profit housing and community development organizations are also invited to apply for a share of the City’s CDBG funding for an activity that primarily serves low-income people. 

The Community Development Department's mission is to be stewards of the City's General Plan, and to assist the community with land development, housing, construction, code compliance, open space, and regional issues, all of which must be kept in balance with the City's environment and resources. Department responsibilities include:

  • Planning Division
  • Building Division
  • Permit Processing
  • Code Compliance
  • Affordable Housing
  • Open Space Acquisition & Management
  • Redevelopment Successor Agency

The City estimates to a portion of $626,000 in CDBG allocation for community development projects and public services (limited to 15% of the annual grant amount). In addition, the City estimates $235,000 in CDBG-CV funds for qualified public services, primarily to benefit homeless and low-income persons through coronavirus-related activities.

The proposal must predominantly benefit low to moderate income persons or households. To meet this objective, a minimum of 51% of the beneficiaries must have individual or household incomes which are designated by HUD as low to moderate income. To determine eligibility for CDBG-funded activities, please refer to the 2021 HUD Section 8 Program Annual Household Income Limits for Oxnard Thousand Oaks-Ventura Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) in the table here:

In addition to meeting the low- and moderate-income benefit national objective, the proposal must also be considered an eligible CDBG activity. Eligible activities include: public services, housing rehabilitation, public improvement, or economic development activities that primarily benefit lower-income persons. CDBG-CV public services funds must be used to prevent, respond to, and prepare for the coronavirus and primarily benefit homeless and lower-income persons through activities related to coronavirus.
