ARP: Brownsville Texas Investing Housing Funds to Support Renters

Idea Category: Housing | Funding Source: American Rescue Plan

Brownsville Mayor Trey Mendez is working to finalize the spending plan for these funds to respond to the needs of the community. The City of Brownsville received $3,324,820 in HOME-ARP funds from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development specifically for housing, services, and shelter for individuals experiencing homelessness and other vulnerable populations. Based on the assessed gaps in services and community needs, the city developed a draft expenditure plan. Mayor Mendez's draft puts an emphasis on serving low-income renters, including supportive services and tenant-based rental assistance. The city will conclude its public comment process in early March 2023.
