Bexar County receives funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The different streams of HUD funding are: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) funds and Emergency Solutions Grant Program funds. 

These funds are administered by Community Development of the Economic and Community Development Department. County funds can only be used outside the city limits of San Antonio, in the unincorporated areas of Bexar County or in one of the Participating Cities listed below.

County funds are used to improve infrastructure, provide public services, build affordable housing and rehabilitate existing housing that meets eligibility criteria. Applicants for CDBG, HOME, and ESG funds must be Federally Registered Non-Profit 501(c)(3) and Governmental Entities. Services are provided through funded agencies.

The goals of the County’s HUD funded programs are to meet the needs of low to moderate income residents who live in unincorporated areas of Bexar County or in one of the Participating Cities by:


  • Providing safe, decent, sanitary and affordable housing;
  • Creating and maintaining suitable living environments;
  • Preventing homelessness, re-house individuals and households who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless; and
  • Creating or expanding economic development opportunities for its residents particularly those who have low to moderate income.
