Community Development


The Texas Community Development Block Grant Program (TxCDBG) plays a critical role in helping smaller communities in our region meet infrastructure needs in low- to moderate-income areas. Administered statewide by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), TxCDBG is the Community Development Block Grant Program for small communities.

At the regional level, NCTCOG assists TDA in the administration of the TxCDBG Community Development Fund (CDF). The CDF provides grant funding to cities and counties for water, sewer, housing, and other improvements. Most incorporated cities with populations under 50,000 and counties with populations under 200,000 are eligible to apply.

Please visit TDA’s CDBG Announcements page for recent news about the program.
