FAQ

Can funds be used for Engineering costs?
Engineering is an allowable cost within an eligible TxCDBG project.

When can entities start to apply for the TxCDBG Grant?
May of 2023 is when you can apply.

For non-entitlement communities that are eligible, would they still qualify even though the standard 51% of the community surrounding any proposed projects needs to be low-moderate income?
No, even if the community is on the list of non-entitlement, they would not be eligible if the median income is more than 80%.
