HERO Financing Program

HERO provides financing for approved energy-efficient, water-efficient, and renewable energy products. The program finances 100% of the cost to purchase and install eligible products and offers low-fixed interest rates. Payment terms are flexible and includes 5/10/15/20 years for most products.

Regional Housing Trust

Since 2018, the SGVCOG has been working to develop a San Gabriel Valley Regional Housing Trust. The trust would be an agency that will be able to receive public and private money and use it to provide affordable housing in the San Gabriel Valley. It is expected that the trust would be operational by early 2020.

Residential Energy Assessments

SGVCOG offers the Energy Assessment Screening for Your Home (EASY) Program on behalf of the San Gabriel Valley Energy Wise Partnership. Residents of the San Gabriel Valley can receive free home energy assessments to identify opportunities to reduce home energy usage. 


SGVCOG supports regional water resiliency and assists member cities in addressing stormwater MS-4 permit requirements, with an emphasis on Measure W implementation and identification of regional solutions. SGVCOG also works to secure funding for regional projects that promote water resiliency.

Energy Efficiency


The San Gabriel Valley Energy Wise Partnership is a partnership between SGVCOG, SoCalGas, and San Gabriel Valley cities, school districts, and special districts. SGVCOG leads the effort to assist cities with launching energy efficiency projects and implementing outreach efforts related to energy efficiency and conservation.



SGVCOG executed a contract with the County of Los Angeles to hire a homelessness coordinator to work with member agencies and study problems, programs, and other matters that pertain to the region's homelessness issues. SGVCOG also assist cities to obtain funding and resources for member cities to provide long-term solutions to the existing issues.

Regional Pool Ordinance

The SGVCOG  adopted a resolution to encourage cities to adopt an ordinance to develop formalized administrative procedures that can lead to the abatement and decrease of improperly-maintained residential swimming pools. These pools serve as mosquito breeding grounds and pose a harmful public health risk.



SGVCOG collaborates with various regional stakeholders to plan regional, inter-city, and inter-regional mobility improvements. SGVCOG proudly works on projects that aim to reduce congestion, including the Measure M Multi-Year Subregional Program Administration, Regional Bikeshare Program, and Open Streets Events.

Wildlife Management

SGVCOG developed a Regional Coyote Management Framework to provide a comprehensive regional coyote management model for all San Gabriel Valley cities. This framework serves as a document that individual cities can modify and adopt based on their needs and interests.
