The City of New Braunfels receives funding from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. This program serves the low- to moderate-income residents and neighborhoods. In order to receive these funds, the City must develop a Consolidated Plan every 5 years and an Annual Action Plan that documents priorities and goals for the program.

This questionnaire is aimed at providing the City with information on the needs, priorities, and visions of residents and stakeholders in New Braunfels. The results of the survey will form the priorities and goals for developing the Annual Action Plan and implementing the CDBG program.

Your participation in this process is greatly appreciated!
