The city of San Marcos is seeking input from the community for the allocation of Community Development Block Grant funds. San Marcos will receive about $600,000 in CDBG funds, which come from the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development, according to a press release sent by the city.

A public meeting will be held on Feb. 19 at 6:00 p.m. at the San Marcos Activity Center, 501 E. Hopkins St., for the community to give feedback on how the funds should be allocated. There is also a survey available online, in both English and Spanish, through Feb. 23.


Paper copies of the survey will be available at the San Marcos Public Library and in the City Hall lobby.

The feedback taken from the community will be used to prepare the CDBG consolidated plan for 2020-2025. The five-year plan will include a strategic outline to address priority needs.
