HUD requires the City of San Marcos to complete an Action Plan for Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds. The plan, including any amendments, will outline how the City of San Marcos is using CDBG-DR funding to help the community recover from the May and October 2015 floods.

Unmet Needs Assessment

The Unmet Needs Assessment guides the City of San Marcos through a process for identifying and prioritizing critical unmet needs for long-term community recovery. The assessment takes into account work already accomplished, community goals, and the City's capacity to plan for, manage, and implement a coordinated long-term recovery process. The ultimate goal is to enable the City of San Marcos to better design recovery programs that are responsive to the types and locations of actual needs on the ground. 

Needs Assessment Task Force


The task force is made up of impacted citizens, community leaders and human service organizations that will help the City identify, and articulate to HUD, the needs of our community. Their work has created the foundation for the Action Plan to implementing the grant and ultimately restoring and creating a more resilient San Marcos.
