CDAC and the City of Bryan Community Development Office administer the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME). The City will receive an estimated $808,200 in CDBG funds and $250,189 in HOME funds for the 2018-19 Program Year. Partnering with local providers, these grants provide funds for eligible activities addressing local needs and priorities. Programs and projects are evaluated and funded in accordance with grant regulations and the city’s current 5-year Consolidated Plan.
The City receives these grants annually to provide technical assistance and/or funding for eligible housing activities including: minor repair; major rehabilitation/reconstruction; housing development; home buyer assistance; and volunteer demolitions. Funds are also used to provide access to public service agency programs for targeted populations such as low/moderate income; elderly; homeless; abused children; and victims of domestic violence. Annual allocation of grant and program income funding is approximately $1.2 million per year.
