Community Meetings, October 27, 2021

Please join us for our kick-off meetings for the 2022-2027 Consolidated Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Plan.  Our first set of meetings will be on October 27, 2021. For more details, please click the Notice of Public Hearing links, below! We look forward to and appreciate your participation. 

Citizen Feedback

Throughout the program year, citizens are given an opportunity to comment on all aspects of the City’s CDBG Program uses and performance.


The City is required to prepare both an annual Action Plan and an annual performance report for HUD identifying community priorities and documenting accomplishments through funded activities, programs, and projects. These reports are available for public review. There are currently no reports ready for public review.

Five-Year Consolidated Plan

In 2017, the City developed its Five-Year Consolidated Plan identifying priorities for the use of CDBG funding resources through 2021. CDBG regulations require that jurisdictions set forth policies and procedures to encourage citizen participation (and particularly participation by persons of low or moderate incomes) during the development of these plans and during the overall administration of the City’s CDBG program.

The City is about to start the process for an updated Five-Year Consolidated Plan.  Click here to subscribe to our interest list.

Public Input

Temecula’s Five-Year Consolidated Plan was developed with a strong emphasis on community input. As part of the process for developing the Consolidated Plan, City staff provided a number of opportunities for public input including surveys, public meetings, and focus groups, email and newspaper notices, and the 30-day draft public review and comment period. All public comments provided to the City either verbally or in writing were included in the appendices of the document when submitted to HUD for final approval.
