Federal HOME and ESG Funds

The City of Paso Robles does not directly receive federal funds under the Home Investment Partnership (HOME) and Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) Programs. Those funds are allocated to the County of San Luis Obispo, which has agreed with other participating cities in the county to cooperate in the allocation of these funds.

100 percent of HOME and ESG funds must be used to benefit low-income persons. HOME funds may be used to construct or rehabilitate housing, acquire property for housing, construct street improvements adjacent to low income housing, purchase affordability covenants (under which rents would be limited to the amount that low income persons can afford), provide first-time homebuyer second mortgage loans, provide rental subsidies and other related uses. ESG funds may be used to construct and operate emergency shelters for homeless persons; they may also be used to purchase motels rooms for the homeless.

The City of Paso Robles has benefited from HOME funds allocated to a countywide first-time homebuyers second mortgage program. The County has allocated HOME funds to the Canyon Creek and Creekside Gardens Apartment Projects to be developed in Paso Robles by Peoples’ Self-Help Housing Corp.

ESG funds have been spent to support the operation of the homeless shelter and homeless day center in San Luis Obispo, facilities that serve the homeless needs of the entire county. ESG funds have also been used to support the operations of women’s shelters in San Luis Obispo and in Atascadero.
