Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a Federal program within the purview of Housing and Urban Development; that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of community development needs. The City of Marshall is allocated annual grant funding to maintain and develop community services for City residents, principally for low- and moderate-income persons.  By April 15, 2015 we will have to develop a plan for how we intend to spend CDBG funds during the next 5 years.  Your input into the process is vitally important.  We have posted a survey on the website to find out your views on the needs in Marshall and the activities you would like to see the City undertake to address those needs. 

In addition, every 5 years we must develop a plan identifying impediments to fair housing choice and activities for reducing those impediments and affirmatively furthering fair housing in Marshall.  The survey also asks for your information about fair housing issues.

We greatly appreciate your time to complete the survey and we will include all responses and comments in our CDBG and Fair Housing Plans.  Please let your friends, neighbors, churches, and civic groups know about the survey.  If you know of individuals without computer access, please contact the City at 903-935-4456 to have a paper version emailed or mailed to you.  Or you may pick up copies at 401 S. Alamo in the Planning & Development Department or at 300 S. Alamo at the City Library.
