Title
Conduct a second public hearing and consider approval of a resolution regarding the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Annual Action Plan for Program Year 2020.

Summary
The CDBG program provides annual grants on a formula basis to entitled communities to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons. The City of Pflugerville became an entitlement community in 2013 and developed the first 5-year Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan at that time. The Consolidated Plan serves as the application to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for CDBG funding. The Consolidated Plan is designed to aid local jurisdictions in assessing their housing and community development needs and priorities. The priorities established by the Consolidated Plan are carried out through actions and activities each year as established in the Annual Action Plan.
The proposed 2020 Action Plan is attached to this agenda item and is available for public viewing Friday, June 26 through July 27 at the following link: www.pflugervilletx.gov/cdbg.
The allocated funding available for actions and activities for the 2020 Program Year is $ 268,995.

Youth Scholarship Program ($20,000)
Yellow Sage construction of roadway improvements ($243,995)
Alternate Project - Frost Circle roadway design (up to $50,...
