Federal Grant Programs

The City of El Monte is an Entitlement City that receives federal funds directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 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 2021 to 2022 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).
