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. Generally, eligible activities include but are not limited to housing, public services, public improvements, economic development, and homelessness.

HOW TO PARTNER WITH THE CITY OF DALLAS

​Organizations desiring to work with the City, by requesting grant funds, should reg​is​​​​ter 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.​​


GRANT MONITORING

​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.​​​
