The City of Jurupa Valley is in the process of becoming an entitlement City for the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). Becoming an "entitlement" community gives the City more direct control over how incoming CDBG funds from the Federal government are spent. Typically, funds are allocated by entitlement communities to areas like social services, infrastructure improvements, and housing intiatives. The City began pursuing this status in early 2017. Currently, the CDBG funding allocation for Jurupa Valley is administered by the Riverside County EDA. Once the City offficially receives "entitlement" status, the City will have independt control to allocate funding within Federal guidelines.
