Community Development Programs
Home Repair Program
The Home Repair Program assists low-income homeowners with substantial repairs such as roofing, plumbing and electrical work. The program provides grants of up to $25,000 in order to improve home safety and bring substandard properties into code compliance. The program does not address cosmetic improvements.
Applicants must be homeowners, Round Rock residents and meet income eligibility guidelines. Applications are accepted all year and funds distributed as available. Priority is given to applicants that are elderly, disabled or have especially low incomes. Please contact the Community Development office (512-341-3328) for more information.
We are not currently accepting applications for the Home Repair Program.
A large portion of CDBG funds are distributed to other nonprofit social service organizations in order to further the program’s goals. Allocations to recipients must be consistent with the community priorities outlined in the 2009-2013 Five-Year Consolidated Plan. Applications are due in the spring, and proposed allocations are subject to a 30-day comment period in early summer. For the 2012-2013 Program Year the Community Development Office received over $1.7 million of grant requests for $482,431 of available CDBG funds.
