Press Release

City of Houston and New Hope Housing Celebrated the Grand Opening of a New Apartment Home Community in Southwest Houston

October 17, 2023 -- Houston, Texas -- The City of Houston’s Housing and Community Development (HCD) Department is dedicated to improving and revitalizing Houston neighborhoods, particularly for low to moderate-income residents. To achieve this, HCD has extended the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) (T32961) until November 10, 2023.

One of the key grants overseen by the HCD is the Community Block Development Grant (CDBG), which aims to create stronger neighborhoods by facilitating collaboration between government and nonprofit agencies. Together, they work towards acquiring, renovating, and constructing public facilities that benefit the community. These public facilities improvements can range from infrastructure projects to neighborhood amenities and even facilities catering to individuals with urgent needs.

As part of the Public Facilities Development Renovation Program, HCD is actively seeking nonprofit agencies and City Departments to participate in acquiring, renovating, or constructing public facilities that specifically benefit low-income individuals. Organizations who share HCD’s passion for enhancing the quality of life in our city are urged to get involved. Together, we can make a positive impact on the lives of those in need.

The department encourages all organizations interested in enhancing public facilities to kindly submit their proposals to HCD. Instructions on proposal submission are included in the NOFA.

The HCD Public Facilities NOFA can be viewed at:
