The mission of the City of Pflugerville's Community Development is to assist in infrastructure, housing, and community development services to benefit eligible residents, so they can have access to livable neighborhoods and increase their opportunities to self-sufficiency.
To accomplish our mission, the City of Pflugerville directly administers the Community Development Block Grant program to serve the city's housing and development needs.
CDBG Action Plan 2017
On August 8, 2017 City Council voted to approval submittal of the 2017 Action Plan to the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) after public hearings were held on July 25th and August 8th.
2017 Action Plan
The CDBG program provides annual grants on a formula basis to entitled communities to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and
by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons. The City of Pflugerville became an entitlement community in 2013 and developed the first 5-year Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan at that time. The Consolidated Plan serves as the application to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for CDBG funding. The Consolidated Plan is designed to aid local jurisdictions in assessing their housing and community development needs and priorities. The priorities established by
the Consolidated Plan are carried out through actions and
activities each year as established in the Annual Action Plan.
The allocated funding available for actions and activities for
the 2017 Program Year is $260,462. This is an annual allocation
and the estimated amount the City may anticipate receiving annually over the next five years. The projects presented reflect the needs identified by the CDBG Amended Consolidated Plan adopted by City Council in April of 2016 which emphasizes the need to focus projects on parks, infrastructure (sidewalks, trails, streetlights, roadways) and public service including senior projects and youth programs.
The total allocation for the 2017 Program Year, including savings from prior year resources, is estimated at $295,300. The proposed projects include:
- Youth Scholarship Program
- Green Meadows Drive Roadway Improvements
- Alternate Project - Frost Circle Roadway Improvements
- Administration Costs including an assessment of Fair Housing
