The Neighborhood Services office is responsible for providing a variety of services to the community including:
The Community Services provides low-cost/free recreation programs for all ages, provides assistance to Pomona's Youth and Family Master Plan, coordinates rentals of city facilities (including community centers and picnic pavilions), and issues permits for special events and park usage.
Pomona offers an array of housing opportunities for people of all ages. From custom-built homes on quiet, tree-lined streets to mansions of historical significance, from rental property to home ownership, the City of Pomona strives to meet the housing needs of its residents.
The Section-8 Rental Assistance Program is a Federally funded program established by the 1974 Housing And Community Development Act to assist very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to select eligible housing, including apartments, townhouses and single-family homes.
The City of Pomona received over $45,000,000 in Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds to respond to the COVID-19 emergency and lead a strong, resilient, and equitable recovery for impacted Pomona residents.
Key objectives of this funding as provided by the Federal government:
- Fight the pandemic and support families and businesses struggling with its public health and economic impacts
- Maintain vital public services, even amid declines in revenue resulting from the crisis
Build a strong, resilient, and equitable recovery by making investments that support long-term growth and opportunity.
