Texas Department of Agriculture - Texas Community Development Block Grant (TxCDBG) Program
The objective of the TxCDBG program is the development of viable communities by providing public infrastructure, suitable living environments, and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income. Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) are available to eligible units of local government.
All incorporated cities and counties in the WCTCOG region are eligible for these funds, with the exception of the City of Abilene, an entitlement city that receives a direct allocation of CDBG funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. In the WCTCOG region, the Community Development Block Grant program focuses on providing basic infrastructure to rural communities. Projects given top funding priority include water, sewer system improvements and street improvements.
Anually, each of the 24 planning regions in the state receive a formula-based allocation of funds for which applicants can compete. The CDBG applications are scored based and criteria developed by the Regional Review Committee (RRC) and points allocated by Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA). The RRC is a 12-member committee composed of local elected officials appointed by the governor. Grants are awarded to the highest ranking cities or counties. Projects are funded until all available money is expended from the cycle.
