2024 Requests for Funding

The proposed allocation for the CDBG Program Year 2023 is $1,172,535.00
Applications are separated into the Public Service and Non-Public Service categories. Federal law caps the amount of CDBG funding that can be spent on Public Service projects at 15% of the City’s total allocation. Applications are then separated into subject categories for convenience; this separation is somewhat subjective, as some applications do not fit easily into a category and/or span more than one category.

The City of Pharr is currently in the development of the Action Plan 2024 and the Five-Year CPS Plan will submit both plans to the City Commission approved Plan by August 15, 2024.
The 30-day Comment Period begins approximately June 15, 2024, and ends on July 15, 2024. For a list of the 2024 Action Plan recommendations, please look for the 30-day Comment Period notice to be published on the City’s Public Library, DRC, City Hall Bulletin Board as well as the City’s Website.
