Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The City of Temple receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Entitlement funds each year from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. As a recipient of these entitlement program funds, the City is required to produce a Citizen Participation Plan, which outlines how and when changes to the Consolidated Plan and/or Annual Action Plan are required. 

The Consolidated Plan outlines how the City of Temple will meet the National Objectives of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program from 2020‐2025. The Consolidated Plan provides a five‐year framework for the program, detailing objectives and expected outcomes.

HUD understands that priorities may shift during the 5-year period, and communities may need to leverage their dollars in other areas. When activities need to be added or deleted from the Consolidated Plan or Annual Action Plan, it is considered to be a substantial amendment and the City is required to seek the changes in accordance with the Citizen Participation Plan. At this time, the City desires to amend the 2020 Annual Action Plan by reallocating the funding for the Infrastructure Improvement Project to accommodate the addition of a staff member to help manage the other programs outlined in the plan. The City intends to keep the Infrastructure Improvement Project in the Consolidated Plan for future implementation.

Comments will be accepted until October 7, 2020, at 5:00 pm. Please direct any comments or questions to Nancy Glover, Director of Housing & Community Development, City of Temple, 101 North Main Street, Temple Texas 76501.
