Community Development Block Grant Pre-Application Workshop
Date: 2/13/2008  
Location: McConico Building Community Room
301 W. Bagdad Ave., Round Rock, Texas  78664 (Map)
Cost: Free

Local agencies are invited to a Community Development Block Grant Pre-Application Workshop. Agencies anticipating applying for grant funds must send a representative to the meeting. 

The City of Round Rock receives an annual allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds that varies from year to year. Regulations by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) specify these funds meet national objectives. The national objectives are divided into three categories: elimination of slum and blight, providing low-moderate income benefit, or meeting an urgent need (generally an area of national disaster).

Examples of eligible activities include:

Public Facilities and Improvements: Neighborhood facilities, streets, sidewalks, parks (playgrounds), flood and drainage improvements, water/wastewater lines

Public Services: Senior services, youth services, handicapped services, health care, job training, education programs, homeless services, child care, recreational programs, drug abuse/counseling, and other similar programs

Economic Development, Housing Rehabilitation, Planning, General Administration

The 2008-2009 CDBG allocation is estimated to be approximately $400,000 for the City of Round Rock.  Under federal guidelines, 15 percent of these funds may be used by public service agencies for operating expenses for new programs or increased levels of services to existing programs serving the Round Rock area.

Public agencies or non-profit agencies (agencies granted 501 (c)(3) status by the Internal Revenue Service) interested in applying for these funds may make application between Feb. 13 and March 28.

For more on the City's CDBG program, visit the Community Development Department web pages.

Reservations for the workshop are required. Interested persons should call 341-3328 to reserve a seat or can email requests to: [email protected]. Reservations close noon Monday, Feb. 11.
