Title

Consider public testimony regarding the City of Round Rock Draft Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) 2020 Annual Action Plan. 

 

Body

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) was developed in 1974 and works to ensure decent affordable housing and to provide services to the most vulnerable in our communities.  To be eligible for CDBG funding, activities must meet one of the three national objectives:  1) Benefit low to moderate income persons 2) Prevent slum or blight 3) Meet an urgent need.

 

The City of Round Rock is a federal entitlement community under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program.  As a HUD entitlement community, the City is required to prepare an annual action plan in order to implement any federal programs that fund housing, community development and economic development within the community.  The City of Round Rock 2020 Annual Action Plan covers the FY 2020 period from October 1, 2020-September 30, 2021.  HUD has allocated $675,500 in CDBG funds to the City of Round Rock for the 2020 program year action plan. In this CDBG 2020 Action Plan we are requesting public testimony and proposing to fund the following projects:

 

Public Services: $101,325

Round Rock Area Serving Center Food Pantry $25,000

Round Rock Area Serving Center Housing Assistance (Rent/Mortgage) $25,000
