Federal Grant Programs

As an Entitlement City, the City of El Monte has the ability to choose which organizations, if any, it would like to work with to implement it’s housing programs.

El Monte uses a mixed approach for implementing its federally funded activities by using both in-house staff and various highly qualified organizations.

For the 2020 to 2021 Program Year, the City will be requesting proposals from various service providers and housing developers by way of releasing a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA).
