The Community Development Department has a variety of grant and loan programs available for very low to low income residents. Residents can come to City Hall and fill out a waitlist form, or download the waitlists below and submit them at City Hall to be considered for a grant. Priority is given to first time applicants. The programs do not permit improvements for aesthetic purposes or home improvement repairs prior to an immediate resale of the property. Applicants will be required to sign a waiver ensuring that they will continue to reside in the subject property after the rehabilitation work is completed for a minimum period of twelve (12) months from the “sign off” or completion of work date, or risk paying back the grant funds.
Since its incorporation in 1960, the unprecedented growth of San Dimas has transformed the City from an essentially rural area to a well-balanced community offering industrial, commercial, and residential living. In addition to the 1,700 acre Frank G. Bonelli Recreational Area which lies within the City boundaries, there are many parks such as San Dimas Canyon Park, a city-owned golf course (San Dimas Canyon Golf Club), and over 27 miles of equestrian trails for riding. The city services include an extensive recreational program for youth and for senior citizens, and the City boasts a new modern City Hall, with excellent provisions made for County Sheriff and Fire Departments, along with a fine Los Angeles County Library and Engineering Regional Office.
