TxCDBG Certified Administrators 

All individuals that are responsible for administration of a TxCDBG grant contract or agreement must be Certified. Administrators are required to review the TxCDBG Implementation Manual and TxCDBG Guide to Meeting an NPO and successfully pass the online test. The Certified Administrator List will be posted below and will be updated as needed. This requirement applies to the point of contact for administrative requirements of the grant, whether a third party administrator procured by a community, an employee of a Council of Government serving as a subrecipient to the community, or an employee of a self-administering community.

The TxCDBG Certified Administrator has been revised to reflect the new Implementation Manual. The new test is available below. Previously Certified Administrators will need to obtain a new certification by November 1, 2023.
