The City of Palm Beach Gardens now qualifies to contract directly with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for federal funding under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The program provides annual grants on a formula basis to entitled cities and counties to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low-and moderate-income persons.

The City's Owner-Occupied Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program is funded by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The Owner-Occupied Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program will provide home repair assistance in the form of a 0% interest deferred payment loan of up to $20,000 for exterior home hardening, such as roof repairs, replacement of exterior windows and doors, and exterior accessibility. The program is available to low-to moderate-income single-family homeowners, per HUD guidelines, on a "first-eligible, first-served" basis.

Households must meet gross annual incomes not exceeding 80% Area Median Income (AMI) limits established by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) for the jurisdiction of Palm Beach County, FL.
