The Grants Administration Division is responsible for managing the community related grants that provide financing for privately owned residential and business related projects. The City has been very successful in utilizing grant dollars to meet the needs of the community.
One example is the Housing Rehabilitation Loan Reuse Program which has provided low interest loans to several lower income property owners in Placerville for needed repairs and/or improvements to their homes. The HOME Grant is also a very successful program that partially financed the self-help housing development known as Orchard Hill.
The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Small Business Loan Program has provided low interest loans to several local businesses and provided an economic stimulus to the Placerville community.
For more information regarding these programs, please call the Grants Administration Division at (530) 642-5200.
