The City of San Marcos will receive $722,904 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the program year beginning October 1, 2020, and ending September 30, 2021. 

The City will accept applications for CDBG project and program funding from March 27, 2020 through May 1, 2020 (5:00 p.m.).  

These funds are primarily for projects and programs that benefit low-to-moderate income residents of San Marcos.  Applications may be submitted by non-profit organizations and City departments; the City is not accepting applications from individuals who need personal housing or other financial assistance.  For programs related to COVID-19 response, the City may consider applications from for-profit entities.

Eligible projects and programs must satisfy a national CDBG program objective. Proposed projects and programs must address one of the High Priority Needs. The following are currently established as High Priority Needs for the City of San Marcos, as stated in the draft 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan:

  • Affordable Housing
  • Public Services (Total for projects funded may be limited to 15% of the annual CDBG allocation.)
  • Public Facilities

Because of the impact of COVID-19, the City may consider adding Economic Development as a category of High Priority Need.  Applications will also be accepted for the following category in case this change is made:

  • Economic Development

Organizations may propose more than one program or project in separate applications.
