COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

The Office of Budget – Grant Administration/Community Development Division provides program oversight of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Consolidated Plan Budget, which includes:​​​

  • Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)​
  • Home Investment Partnership Program Grant (HOME)​
  • Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG)​​
  • Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA)​​

The City of Dallas receives these grants on an annual basis from HUD. Program oversight for these grants involve interaction between the City of Dallas and HUD; training and monitoring City departments administering projects; staff support to the City Council-appointed Community Development Commission (CDC); and interpretation of HUD Federal Regulations.

Grant funds are intended for the development of viable urban communities by providing decent housing and suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for the benefit of low and moderate income individuals. Shaded sections on the CD Eligible Census Tracts and Block Groups have been identified as primarily low-/moderate-income areas (LMA), and all qualified activities occurring within these sections are considered to benefit all residents and businesses within the corresponding area

The Consolidated Plan identifies the needs, priorities, and details on how the community needs will be addressed through a comprehensize analysis and strategic plan. Resident input is also an important part of the budget development process to help the City determines activities that will best serve the needs of the community based upon HUD eligible activites. The FY 2020-21 HUD Consolidated Plan Budget was approved by Res. #20-0655.

Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES ACT)

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) provides billions of dollars in federal grant funding to state, local, tribal and territorial governments, hospitals, and other organizations in response to the coronavirus pandemic.  

The CARES Act includes additional HUD funds to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to facilitate immediate assistance to eligible communities and households economically impacted by COVID-19.  The CARES Act also included a waiver to allow a public review and comment period to be no less than 5 days.   Due to reduced and suspended services in the current year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, available unspent HUD have been identified to reallocate to further support the City's COVID-19 relief efforts.
