CDBG & HOME Program Funds Allocation
Request for Proposals
All City of Killeen CDBG and HOME program funds are allocated through a competitive process. The process begins with Community Planning Meetings, followed by the publication of a Notice of Funds Availability (NOFA) and requests for proposals from eligible entities for eligible activities. The process continues with presentation of proposed eligible activities (projects/programs) by approved applicant entities to the Community Development Advisory Committee (CDAC).
CDAC prioritizes the proposals in accordance with the National Objectives and eligible activities that will benefit low- and moderate-income persons through Area Benefit, Limited Clientele, or by Urgent Need.
CDAC prepares their recommendations and presents those priority proposals, through two Public Hearings, to the Killeen City Council.
Upon Council approval, the proposed projects/programs/activities are submitted to HUD for final approval, which is generally granted in late September or early October. Community Development Department Staff prepares and executes grant agreements and the approved proposals from eligible entities can begin their project/program/activity.
