Grant Description
Grants to Texas nonprofit and for-profit organizations, government agencies, and housing organizations for community and economic development projects in eligible locations. Funding is intended for programs and activities that serve low- to moderate-income individuals, aid in the prevention of slums or blight, or meet an urgent community need, such as disaster relief. Eligible projects are within the city limits of New Braunfels or provide services to New Braunfels residents.

Funds are distributed throughout the community to provide eligible recipients with annual grants that can be used to revitalize neighborhoods, expand affordable housing, provide economic opportunities, and improve community facilities and services, primarily supporting low and moderate-income persons.

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

Three (3) separate applications are available for Public Services, Public Facilities, and Housing activities. For additional details see the applications in Supporting Documents, below.
