Community Development Block Grant Program

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Community Development Block Grant funds are used to conduct activities that assist low- to moderate-income residents, households and communities. Activities must meet one of three National Objectives:

  1. Serve low-to moderate-income residents
  2. Eliminate or mitigate slums and blight
  3. Address an emergency need

To receive CDBG funds, the City of San Marcos must develop a Consolidated Plan, Annual Action Plan, Citizen Participation Plan, and a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report. These documents (which can be found below) outline how the City plans on and has used our CDBG funds.

NEW! The City is drafting its 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan and 2020 Annual Action Plan which coincides with the City’s next fiscal year, 2021.  We need your input.  Please take a short survey to let us know how you would like the City to expend its federal CDBG funds to improve the quality of life for our low-income residents.
