Neighborhood Services Division
The Neighborhood Services Division administers federal funds received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Lodi receives two grants based on a formula allocation:
- The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
- The HOME Investment Partnership Act Grant (HOME)
Federal funds administered by the division support programs and services for low-to-moderate income citizens and neighborhoods to increase self-sufficiency and meet needs that are otherwise not being met in the community.
The Neighborhood Services Division works closely with the Lodi Improvement Committee in developing programs to improve the quality of life for Lodi residents.
Since 1985, the City of Lodi has participated in the Community Development Block Grant Program, which distributes federal funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development each year.

An Access Center is a low-barrier, service-enriched shelter that facilitates linkage to needed resources to help individuals and families exit the cycle of homelessness. Onsite services include intensive case management, hygiene facilities, 24/7 staffing including security, and janitorial services. An Access Center offers highly marginalized people the opportunity to regain safety and engage in supportive connections that allow them to move forward with rebuilding their lives, as well as develop pathways to permanent housing, income, healthcare, sobriety, and stability. In a low-barrier setting, partners, pets, and possessions are allowed to make sheltering more accessible by minimizing barriers. Low-barrier does not mean low-expectations. Violence, weapons, open use of substances, or disruptive behavior is not allowed within or around the facility.
