Community Development Block Grant

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 within the Travis County CDBG Service Area, which varies by program year. For the current CDBG Program Year (PY21), this service area includes all of San Leanna, Webberville, Creedmoor, Lago Vista, West Lake Hills, and Bee Cave, along with all of the unincorporated areas of Travis County. Residents and non-profit agencies can help determine funding priorities by providing ideas for projects and information about community needs. The service area for ongoing projects funded in prior program years and future projects may vary from the above.
