HUD Grants

The Williamson County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program currently has ten participating cities. The cities include Cedar Park, Coupland, Georgetown, Granger, Hutto, Jarrell, Leander, Liberty Hill, Taylor, and Weir. A five year Consolidated Plan was developed in 2014 in an effort to address needs of low to moderate income persons living within Williamson County. The County has been awarded CDBG funds in the amount of $1,283,203 for Fiscal Year 2017. In accordance to the priorities identified and outlined in the County's Consolidated Plan, three infrastructure projects, two public facility projects, and one social service project were identified for FY17 allocations. The projects will serve low to moderate income areas and households throughout the County. The Action Plan covers the period of October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2018. The projects meet national goals and supports ongoing efforts in the community to address the growing population.

Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice

The Urban County of Williamson County has prepared an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice to satisfy the requirements of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended.  This act requires that any community receiving Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds affirmatively further fair housing.  As a result, the Urban County is charged with the responsibility of conducting its CDBG programs in compliance with the federal Fair Housing Act.  The responsibility of compliance with the federal Fair Housing Act extends to nonprofit organizations and other entities, including local units of government which receive federal funds through Williamson County.
