The funds will be used for a utility bill assistance program designed to help low- to moderate-income Pflugerville residents who receive water, wastewater or trash service through the city and who have been adversely affected by the pandemic, according to a city news release.
Funds can go towards three consecutive months of utility payments within a 12-month period. The program will be open as long as funding is available.
Pflugerville residents can apply through a city survey.
The Community Development Block Grant program, funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, provides aid to local jurisdictions for providing a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities for low and moderate income residents.
A city’s eligibility for CDBG program funds is determined by census data, according to the HUD website.
