TxCDBG Community Development Fund 2025-26 Regional Priorities

The TxCDBG Community Development Fund is a biennial grant program administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) which provides financial assistance to cities with populations of less than 50,000 and counties with population under 200,000 for a wide variety of activities, largely public infrastructure related. The Community Development (CD) Fund is the largest TxCDBG funding category, and the FY 2025-26 application cycle will be based on a scoring methodology that considers objective factors for selection and ranking of applicants for funding.

The maximum score for a CD Fund application will be 200 points. These points are assigned in three ways:

  • 65% of the points are assigned based on objective criteria adopted by the State’s Unified Scoring Committee;
  • 25% of the points are assigned based on the Regional Project Priorities selected by the governing board, or a designated committee, of each state planning region; and
  • 10% of the points are assigned based on State Scoring factors adopted by TDA.


The Unified Scoring Committee, comprised of representatives from each State Planning Region, will meet on April 10, 2024 to determine the Unified Scoring Criteria, totaling 130 points and in the packet below. 20 points are awarded by the State based on TDA scoring factors.

The remaining 50 points are determined by projects CTCOG determines are priorities for the seven County CTCOG region. First priority projects will receive the total 50 points when being scored, and second, third, and last priority projects will be given less points, determined by the committee that will establish the priorities.

On April 25, 2024 CTCOG’s Executive Committee hosted a public meeting with a public hearing to receive feedback on what our region’s project priorities should be. After receiving public feedback, the committee went through eligible TxCDBG Community Development Fund projects (on the regional priority form) and assigned a rank of 1,2,3, or 0 and approved them for FY 2025-26.
