A virtual public hearing will take place at a San Marcos City Council meeting June 2 to comment for or against programs and projects to be added to the 2019-20 Community Development Block Grant Action Plan using CDBG-Coronavirus Response funds.

The city received $425,261 in CDBG-CV funds through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The funds must be used to prevent and prepare for the economic and health impacts of the pandemic.

Residents who would like to speak during the public hearing must email [email protected] before noon June 2.

For-profit businesses, nonprofits, government agencies and city departments were encouraged to apply to receive CDBG-CV funding for programs and projects.

The drafted plan will be available for public comment on the city’s website from June 7-13. City Council will then vote on the proposed amendments June 16.
