The Grants & Housing Department is relocating to 2508 Ball Street effective July 1, 2017.
The City of Galveston’s 2016 Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) is available for review and comment. This report covers the period of June 1, 2016 through May 31, 2017. The 2016 CAPER will be available for the public to review in the Grants & Housing Department, 2508 Ball Street, during the business hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday for the 15-Day Citizen Comment Period.
The City was required to estimate the amount of Program Income (PI) that it anticipated receiving for allocation purposes for the 2016 Annual Action Plan. The City estimated the PI receipts of $40,000 in CDBG and $15,000 in HOME for the 2016 Program Year. PI is primarily received from housing program loan payments and payoffs and lot clearance/boardup and demolition lien payoffs. The City received $72,819.12 in CDBG PI and $63,756.10 in HOME PI. Due to the deviation of more than the City’s 25% rule for a substantial amendment, this is to notify the public of the difference in PI receipts that were available to complete the objectives of the City’s Consolidated Plan.
The City of Galveston encourages citizen participation. Comments regarding the 2016 CAPER or the amendment for actual CDBG and HOME Program Income receipts may be directed to the Grants & Housing Department, 2508 Ball Street, Galveston, Texas 77550 or by telephone at (409) 797-3820. Comments will be received until 5 p.m. on August 28, 2017.
