Attend a Public Hearing
The CDBG office holds public hearings three times a year:
- During the Spring (February/March), residents have the opportunity to present community needs and recommend project ideas for the next program year.
- During the Summer (June/July) residents have the opportunity to comment on the recommended projects for the next program year.
- During the Fall (November/December) residents can comment on the program's annual report.
The next set of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) public hearings will take place at 9:00 a.m. on June 28, 2016 and 9:00 a.m. on July 12, 2016 at Travis County Commissioner Court, 700 Lavaca, Austin, TX. Comments will be accepted on the proposed PY16 Action Plan and Substantial Amendments to the PY15 Action Plan.
