Housing

The Housing Division is committed to assisting the general public with acquisition of residential property, provide aide in maintaining and rehabilitating the existing housing stock within the City of South El Monte. The Housing Division also administers the City’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program and oversees the maintenance and update to the City’s Housing Element.

The Housing Element is one of at least seven elements of a General Plan as mandated by the State of California. It identifies the City’s housing conditions and needs (RHNA), establishes the goals, objectives, and policies that are the foundation of the City’s housing and growth strategy, and provides for programs the City intends to implement to create sustainable, mixed-income neighborhoods throughout the City.
