City: $1M in CDBG Funding Available for Neighborhood Improvements in Districts 3, 5

The City of El Paso announced on Thursday that they will allocate $1 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding to improve low-and moderate-income neighborhoods in Districts 3 and 5.

Each targeted district will receive $500,000 for needed improvements in their neighborhoods.

Via a news release, city officials stated, “CDBG’s main purpose is to provide decent, safe and sanitary housing, a suitable living environment, and economic opportunities to low- and moderate-income residents. CDBG funds have such a positive impact in El Paso’s neighborhoods not only with improvements but by building a sense of community pride.”

Proposed projects must be located in either District 3 or 5, be in a CDBG eligible area and benefit low- and moderate-income neighborhoods to be considered for funding.

CDBG funds can be used for a variety of projects including:

  • Neighborhood, Recreation and Senior Centers
  • Park Improvements
  • Small-Scale Green Infrastructure
  • Libraries
  • Walkability and Accessibility

The City will also receive approximately $2.6 million for large-scale citywide projects. More information on these projects can be found by clicking on the banner on the Community + Human Development webpage.

Citizen request forms can be downloaded at the website or picked up at any City facility located in Districts 3 or 5 (libraries, recreation and senior centers) or at the Community and Human Development located in City 3 at 801 Texas, 3rd Floor.

Deadline to submit a proposed project is 6:00 p.m. Friday, September 28.  For more information, call (915) 212-0138 or email CDBGApplications@elpasotexas.gov
