In 2019, Travis County was allocated Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) federal funds, from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Texas General Land Office (GLO), for the following two projects:

Homebuyer Assistance Program: This program will provide homebuyer assistance activities for low- to moderate-Income (LMI) households who were directly affected by the 2015 floods in Travis County. The program will offer homebuyer assistance for an estimated twenty-five (25) households who were impacted renters or homeowners living in a home that was flooded at the time of the 2012 storm events, and who will be buying a home in Travis County. Funding can be provided for up to 100% of the down payment needed per household; however, it is restricted to the amount needed to facilitate homeownership. Other requirements and restrictions apply. The program will be administered by a Program Operator selected by Travis County. Eligible residents will need to apply through the Program Operator when the program is launched. The 2022 Revised Housing Guidelines provide an overview of the program.

Crystal Bend Drainage Improvements Project: This project will consist of drainage infrastructure improvements to facilitate proper storm water conveyance and reduce the impact of future flooding at Crystal Bend Drive. The project will consist of a new drainage structure along a portion of Crystal Bend Drive, between Crooked Creek Dr and Long Meadow Dr in Austin, Texas, to replace the undersized structure located at the crossing of Harris Branch Creek. The project will be designed to eliminate or reduce water from overtopping the roadway at this location.
