It's National Community Development Week!

This week is National Community Development Week and for this week, we celebrate Community Development Block Grants (CDBG)! The CDBG program provides grants to Monrovia (and cities/counties all over the US) for housing rehabilitation and Code Enforcement. These grants are targeted to low-income and moderate-income persons and households. This program has helped thousands of Monrovians over the last THIRTY YEARS! Want more information on our Residential Rehabilitation program? Check the link!

MAP Neighborhood Conference - TWO WEEKS AWAY!!

Just a few quick announcements about our 8th Annual MAP Neighborhood Conference…can you believe it is in less than 2 weeks?? Have you registered yet? Have you told your neighbors to register yet? If not, PLEASE CLICK HERE ! We are so excited about our workshops, which were developed to continue to equip you with the tools needed to help lead improvements throughout every neighborhood in Monrovia (see them HERE!).
Did you know April 22 is also Earth Day? To celebrate, we are adding something new and exciting – a Succulent Plant Sale! Canyon Park is partnering with us to bring amazing succulents to us (make sure you bring cash!). How do you plant succulents, you ask? Lucky us, a Park Ranger will teach us in Session 2!

April 22 will be such a fun and amazing day, I can’t wait for everyone to see all the hard work we have put into this day. See you then…and don’t forget – wear your green shirts!

35th Annual Historic Homes Tour

Each year on the first Sunday in May, MOHPG sponsors a tour of homes in Monrovia.  Five to seven homes, representing the wide variety of vintage structures which helps make Monrovia a desirable place to live, are opened to the public.  Over 200 volunteers, many who do not belong to the organization, work many hours to make the tour a success, This is MOHPG’s primary fundraiser of the year.  
Visitors from outside the immediate area are delighted to discover this “gem” of a city of restored and well-maintained vintage homes.  A typical year will find 500-700 “lookie-loos” spending up to six hours (the homes are open from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.) exploring the homes and delving into each house’s unique history.

Look for information about the event on the home page of this website beginning sometime in early March of each year. Tickets will be available for purchaseonline, usually by the end of March.
