The City was required to estimate the amount of Program Income (PI) that it anticipated receiving for allocation purposes in the 2018 Action Plan. The City estimated the PI receipts of $30,000 in CDBG and $30,000 in HOME for the 2018 Program Year. The City received $17,704.30 in CDBG PI and $112,160.55 in HOME PI. Due to the deviation in CDBG and HOME PI of more than the City’s 25% rule for a substantial amendment, this is to notify the public of the amendment in PI receipts that were available to complete the objectives of the City’s Consolidated Plan.

The City of Galveston encourages citizen participation. Comments regarding the 2018 CAPER or the amendment may be directed to the Grants & Housing Department, 2508 Ball Street, Galveston, Texas 77550 or by telephone at (409) 797-3820.
