Guidelines

Authorized under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, the CDBG Program provides eligible cities and counties with annual formula-based grants. These grants can be used to revitalize neighborhoods, expand affordable housing, offer economic opportunities and improve community facilities and services.

Funding received from Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for CDBG activities or projects is used locally to meet priority community needs identified in the City of New Braunfels' Consolidated Plan. All activities carried out with CDBG funding must meet one of the following national objectives:

  • Benefit low and moderate-income persons; Aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight; or Meet community development needs having a particular urgency e.g., response to a hurricane, tornado, flood, or similar disaster

Grant recipients must certify that at least 70% of HUD funds must be expended on behalf of low and moderate-income persons.
