TxCDBG Applicants, Awards and Success Stories

Application Submission UPDATE!

We look forward to receiving applications on September 1, 2020 for:
 - Downtown Revitalization/Main Street Programs
 - Fire, Ambulance and Service Truck Fund (FAST)
 - Planning and Capacity Building Fund
 - Colonia Fund - Construction (Secondary Round)

Due to the current pandemic conditions, TDA offices remain closed to the public.  Therefore TDA is modifying the application submission procedures for the aforementioned applications.

All Applications for TXCDG Funding must be submitted electronically to TDA, as follows:

- Submit all applications to CDBGapps@TexasAgriculture.gov
      - The emailed application will be the document of record
      - TDA strongly discourages mail delivery for applications – application materials mailed to TDA that arrive after the application due date will not be considered part of the original application
      - TDA will NOT be accepting hand-delivered applications

- Please use subject line: [Fund Acronym] - [Name of Applicant] 
      - Example: DRP/MS – Sample City
      - Example: CFC – Sample County

-The email must include a complete scanned copy of the application as a single PDF document
      - Maps must be legible and not folded
      - Newspaper publications must be scanned as described in the application guide
      - If an income survey was performed, include the Survey Tab Form in the single PDF document.  If the survey has not been previously approved (including TDA staff initials), attach the complete survey documentation (Survey Tab Form, Address List, Survey Questionnaires) as a separate document

- The PDF application must be signed by the authorized official
      - Scanned copies of the wet ink signature are acceptable
      - Digital signatures that comply with the TxCDBG Project Implementation Manual requirements are also acceptable (See Chapter 2, page 6)
