Community Development Commission
Community Development Commission (CDC) is a 15-member advisory board appointed
by City Council. The CDC meets monthly to foster resident participation and
provide advice and recommendations to the City Manager and City Council on the
use of these HUD grants. You can visit their website here.
Citizen Participation Plan
The Citizen Participation Plan required by HUD informs residents of the ways they can participate in determining how specific HUD grant funds will be used and how the community will engage in fair housing planning. The City encourages all residents to participate, especially those who live in areas eligible for grant funds. We also work hard to make the process accessible to everyone, including disabled residents or residents who speak languages other than English. Read the full plan here.
Public Meetings and Notices
The primary way residents can participate is through annual public meetings hosted by the City. All resident input about community needs is incorporated into the development of the Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plans, the substantial amendments process, and annual performance reports to HUD. While COVID-19 restrictions remain in place, we welcome you to participate in meetings virtually. Residents who want to speak during the meeting must register with the City Secretary's Office in advance by emailing CitySecretary@dallascityhall.com or calling (214) 670-3738.
