The Neighborhood Improvement Division of the Community Development Department is committed to providing programs and services designed to improve Garden Grove neighborhoods. With support from the Neighborhood Improvement and Conservation Commission and federal funding from the Community Development Block Grant, Neighborhood Improvement offers a variety of tools you and your neighbors can use to improve your homes and neighborhoods.
The City of Garden Grove is in the process of updating its 5-Year Consolidated Plan for participation in the HUD funded CDBG and ESG programs. Public outreach is an integral component of this update. We need your input to help determine housing and community needs in your community for future funding. As part of the process we ask that you participate in a survey.
The Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program provides Garden Grove residents who are at risk of becoming homeless with temporary financial assistance to prevent them from becoming homeless, and also to provide residents who are homeless with housing relocation and stabilization services.
If you are interested in receiving homeless prevention or re-housing services, please contact one of these ESG Service Providers.
First Time Homebuyers Program
The City of Garden Grove has placed the First Time Homebuyer on hold until further notice. When funds are available, Neighborhood Improvement has First Time Homebuyers Programs to assist low-income applicants to qualify to purchase their first home. The programs make available a limited number of silent second and third mortgages to help applicants with the money necessary to qualify to purchase a home in Garden Grove.
