Proposed Amendment 13 to the CDBG-Disaster Recovery Action Plan

Substantial Amendment No. 13 to the CDBG-DR Action Plan is now proposed as follows. All amounts are close approximations.

  1. As directed by City Council at the August 16, 2022, meeting, the following activities are proposed to be cancelled because implementation is infeasible at this time: the Single Family Owner Occupied Reimbursement activity ($1,000,000) and the Rental Unit Rehabilitation and Reconstruction activity ($659,013). Funding is proposed to be moved to the Midtown/Aquarena Springs Project as described below.
  2.  Available funding is proposed to be reallocated from various projects to the Midtown/Aquarena Springs Project to fund its construction. The following amounts could be moved from infrastructure projects without impact to the scope of those projects: $651,500 from Blanco Gardens Project, $37,650 from Uhland Road Project, and $750,000 from Blanco Riverine Project. In addition, $1,000,000 is proposed to be moved from the Single Family Owner Occupied Reimbursement activity and $659,013 from the Rental Unit Rehabilitation and Reconstruction activity. $1884.16 is proposed to be moved from the Public Housing Authority activity, as that activity has been completed.
