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.
2017-2018 CDBG: Youth Recreation
Scholarship Program The City of Pflugerville Parks and Recreation Department Youth Recreation Scholarship Program provides financial aid for eligible City of Pflugerville youth, up to and including age 18, who are without the financial resources to participate in Parks and Recreation classes and/or activities, including summer camp.
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.
Proposed are amendments to Action Plan years 2014, 2015 and 2016 to reallocate grant dollars towards infrastructure improvements, in addition to the projects previously approved with the 2017 Action Plan. Projects proposed for funding through CDBG include:
- Youth Scholarship Program (click here for an application)
- Green Meadows Drive Roadway Improvements
- Mill Creek Roadway Improvements
- El Malino Roadway Improvements
- Administrative costs related to the CDBG program
At the end of each year the City is required to submit a report on accomplishments and progress toward Consolidated Plan goals in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. CDBG Documents are available for review online as well as at the Pflugerville Public Library (1008 W. Pfluger Street).
Citizen participation and stakeholder consultation are key components of every state or community’s Consolidated Plan. The Citizen Participation Plan is being updated to meet recent requirements from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regarding Fair Housing Plans.
