The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development provides the City of Hialeah with an annual allocation of funding for the execution of three separate federal grant programs: the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) programs.

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program grant has the primary objective to expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing, as well as support the creation of programs geared to assist low and moderate-income families and individuals, augmenting and fostering economic growth. Throughout this program, the City has been able to create and strengthen linkages between all levels of government, the private sector, other non-profit and for-profit agencies and organizations, thus maximizing existing resources.

Micro-Enterprise Business Assistance Program

The Micro-Enterprise Business Assistance Program is a program aimed at small businesses in Hialeah (5 or fewer employees) in a selected area and provides financial assistance to support business expansion, increased revenues, and economic development in the city.

Community Cultural Enrichment Program

The Community Cultural Enrichment Program strives to invigorate the beautification and cultural enrichment of the city through the installation of permanent fixtures at various public facilities throughout Hialeah.

Primary Care Clinic

CDBG funds are used by the City to help fund the Citrus Health Network's operation of a primary care clinic targeting low-income and uninsured individuals and families in Hialeah to provide treatment against prevalent diseases, preventive care, vaccinations, health screenings, pediatric care, and more.

Therapeutics Program

The CDBG program funds a therapeutic program designed to help youth and adults with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities as well as autism in Hialeah.

Crime Prevention

The City of Hialeah funds the acquisition of equipment that assists the Hialeah Police Department in the prevention and deterrence of criminal activity within areas affected by violent crime, making a safer community for Hialeah residents.

Hialeah Technology Center

The Hialeah Technology Center (HiaTec) is a non-profit industrial training and technology development center that contributes to the economic development of the local community through training and business incubation. HiaTec programs are targeted to upgrade the skills of local workers for new and better job opportunities in our city.

Roadway Improvements

The City is executing roadway improvement projects to replenish the condition of various roads throughout Hialeah that have been in need of repair. Specifically, the current roads chosen for these infrastructure improvements are: W 31 St & W 32 St (from W 8 Ave to W 12 Ave), W 46 St (from W 16 Ave to 18 Ct and W 17 Ct from W 46 St to W 49 St), W 16 Ave (from W 68 St to W 74 St), and W 21 Ct (from W 56 St to W 60 St).

Emergency/Residential Repairs

The City of Hialeah utilizes CDBG funds to provide eligible extremely low, very low, and low-income households with assistance in the event of necessity for emergency repairs to their homes, such as deplorable conditions present in an electrical, plumbing, mechanical, or roofing capacity. As well, the City utilizes these funds for augmentations to homes for improved accessibility for residents with special needs.

Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG)

The Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) awarded to the City of Hialeah funds the HAND Program administered by the Citrus Health Network for assistance to individuals and families that are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Services provided by the HAND Program, as funded with ESG, include homelessness prevention, rapid re-housing, emergency shelter, street outreach, and stabilization services to guide program participants to achieving financial stability to prevent further instances of becoming at risk of homelessness or becoming homeless.

HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME)

The HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program allows participating jurisdictions to fund a wide range of activities including building, buying, and/or rehabilitating affordable housing for rent or homeownership and more, exclusively with the objective of providing safe, decent, and affordable housing for low-income households.

Rental Housing Development

With HOME funds provided by the City of Hialeah, the Hialeah Housing Authority is currently developing 80 units for affordable housing to increase the amount of rental housing available to low-income elderly residents of Hialeah. Over the years, the City of Hialeah has utilized HOME funds for the construction of numerous rental housing buildings, which continue to operate and provide safe, decent, and affordable housing for the elderly residents of Hialeah.

Rental Housing Rehabilitation

The City of Hialeah is utilizing HOME funds to administer rental housing rehabilitation to two city-owned elderly housing properties: Villa Aida and Villa Esperanza. Villa Aida, which houses 57 units of elderly-occupied housing, and Villa Esperanza, which houses 32 units of elderly-occupied housing, shall be receiving repairs to augment the building's energy efficiency and improve the quality of life for their residents.

CHDO Development

15% of the City of Hialeah's annual HOME allocation must be reserved for use by a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) interested in producing eligible affordable housing. The City recommends any non-profit organization interested in partnering for the development of CHDO housing should review the CHDO Qualification Information Sheet and verify their eligibility to receive HOME CHDO reserve funds.
