Public Service Agencies

NEW!!! The City of Allen will be accepting applications from public service agencies for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Community Support Grant (CSG) funding from May 18, 2017 until June 5, 2017.  It is estimated that $98,000 will be available for public services for the 2017-2018 program year starting on October 1, 2017. It should be noted that due to a delay in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) allocation process this amount is subject to change. All proposed activities will be proportionately increased or decreased from the estimated funding levels to match actual allocation amounts. Questions regarding the application process should be directed to Luisa Melgarejo at (214) 509-4174 or via email at
