Housing and Community Development Spring 2023 Community Meetings

Please join us for one of our Spring Community Meetings to give input on the Draft 2023 Annual Action Plan. Over the next year, approximately $45 million in federal entitlement grants will be available to improve Houston’s neighborhoods and the quality of life for low- and moderate-income families. These federal grants include the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Housing Opportunities for Persons with HIV/AIDS (HOPWA), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).

Housing and Community Development (HCD) staff will also discuss the revised activities and budgets in the Draft Action Plan for Disaster Recovery: 2021 Winter Storm. This revised plan incorporates an additional $19.7 million in disaster recovery funds that will help Houstonians recover from the 2021 Winter Storm (the Freeze) and enhance resiliency in future events.
