cdbg-spanish-main

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program funds housing, infrastructure and social services projects for residents with low and moderate income that live in the unincorporated areas of Travis County and the Villages of Webberville and San Leanna. Residents and non-profit agencies can help determine funding priorities by providing ideas for projects and information about community needs.

The program provides annual grants on a formula basis to entitled cities and counties to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons. Visit the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development web site for more information.

Community Needs Survey

If you live in unincorporated Travis County or the Villages of San Leanna or Webberville, we want to hear from you!

Please complete the Travis County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) PY21 Community Needs Survey. This survey allows residents to tell us about community needs that impact low- and moderate-income families, persons with disabilities, seniors, and youth. Your input will be used to help develop Travis County’s annual action plans for the approximately $1.2 million in annual CDBG funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It will also help inform other Travis County departments about needs in these areas of the county.

The survey is available online in English and Spanish (Español) or can be mailed upon request. To request a mailed copy of the survey, call 512-854-3460 or email [email protected] You can also download and print the survey in English or Spanish (Español). Please turn in completed surveys at any Travis County Community Center or mail them to Travis County CDBG, P.O. Box 1748, Austin, TX 78767.
