CDBG-DR Housing Program

The City of San Marcos will launch a disaster recovery housing program open Oct. 18, 2017 to begin repairing and rebuilding flood damaged homes. Applicants will have until Nov. 17, 2017 to apply to receive assistance.

The program is funded with a portion of the $25.08 million grant awarded to City of San Marcos from the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development’s CDBG-DR program to assist qualified residents with rehabilitation or reconstruction of single family homes, or rental properties damaged in the 2015 floods.  $7.5 million is set aside for housing, the city will use the remaining funds on flood mitigation infrastructure projects, planning and administration of the grant.

The housing program will assist with owners of both owner-occupied and rental housing who meet the program criteria.
