Five-Year Consolidated Plan
During the month of January public hearings were held to give residents an opportunity to have input on community needs and the use of federal funds for the next fiscal year (which begins October 1). On January 17, 2019 The City hosted a Telephone Townhall virtual meeting, providing residents the opportunity to join and participate in the virtual meeting by landline, mobile phone or Web Simulcast.
Residents provided input for the Five-Year Consolidated Plan by U.S. Mail, online, or in-person at a public hearing or at the Office of Budget / Grant Administration Division.
Grant Funding for Organizations Desiring to Work with the City of Dallas
Organizations desiring to work with the City, by requesting grant funds, should register online as a vendor with the Office of Procurement Services. Texas law requires contractors to be selected through competitive bidding. Organizations must compete in a publicly advertised solicitation process. Organizations may only recommend concepts (i.e. programs or services) for funding based on an un-served or under-served need in the community.
Approved Consolidated Plan Budget
Projects and/or programs in the approved Consolidated Plan Budget may be administered directly through city services that are identified through other agencies or departments directly. Some projects in the approved budget are implemented by contractors. Organizations that desire to work with the City through a City contract should register online as a vendor on the Business Development & Procurement Services website.
HUD Grants are monitored to ensure that all Consolidated Plan grant funds under the City of Dallas’ oversight are used in accordance with all program requirements, and for determining adequacy of performance.
