COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT
Glendale homeowners who meet low to moderate income requirements are eligible to receive financial and technical assistance to make a variety of home repairs. A participant can receive 100% of the cost of correcting authorized repairs, based on a maximum benefit limit of $5,000 per household.

· Roof replacement
· Concrete and masonry repair or replacement
· Tree removal
· Hand rail installation
· Major plumbing repair or replacement
· Major electrical repairs
