Body

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) was developed in 1974 and works to ensure decent affordable housing and 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 2021-2022 Annual Action Plan covers the FY 2021 period from October 1, 2021-September 30, 2022.  HUD has allocated $692,991 in CDBG funds to the City of Round Rock for the 2021 program year action plan.
