Community Development

The Community Development and Housing program oversees Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), Social Service Grants, Fair Housing, the Down Payment Assistance Program (serving City of Frisco and Frisco ISD employees) and the Housing Rehabilitation Program.

These services are guided by the Social Services & Housing Board.

The Annual Action Plan PY 2018 is the fourth year Action Plan under the five year PY 2015 – PY 2019 Consolidated Plan required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Funds.

Inclement Weather Shelter Information:

As winter approaches, our homeless neighbors are facing colder temperatures.  Many area shelters have put together inclement weather shelters in an effort to provide additional times and spaces to house more individuals for longer periods of time in order to reduce the number of homeless outside in the cold.  Please see the links below for additional information on the locations and specifics of each shelter:
