Community Needs Survey

If you live in unincorporated Travis County or the Villages of San Leanna or Webberville, we want to hear from you!

Please complete the Travis County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) PY21 Community Needs Survey. This survey allows residents to tell us about community needs that impact low- and moderate-income families, persons with disabilities, seniors, and youth. Your input will be used to help develop Travis County’s annual action plans for the approximately $1.2 million in annual CDBG funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It will also help inform other Travis County departments about needs in these areas of the county.

The survey is available online in English and Spanish (Español) or can be mailed upon request. To request a mailed copy of the survey, call 512-854-3460 or email cdbg@traviscountytx.gov. You can also download and print the survey in English or Spanish (Español). Please turn in completed surveys at any Travis County Community Center or mail them to Travis County CDBG, P.O. Box 1748, Austin, TX 78767.
