Citizen Participation Plan

The City is required to adopt and implement a Citizen Participation Plan. The plan provides citizens and other interested parties with opportunities to participate in the planning, implementation and evaluation of the CDBG program which primarily benefits Edinburg’s low-and moderate-income residents.

This plan provide citizens with the following:
  • Reasonable and timely access to local meetings
  • Opportunities to review proposed activities and program performance 
  • Timely written answers to written complaints and grievances
  • Accommodations to persons with disabilities and non-English speaking residents
The City of Edinburg encourages citizen participation in the CDBG process through a series of public meetings, as well as through a published announcement prior to final project and program selection. Throughout the program year, citizens are given an opportunity to comment on all aspects of the City’s CDBG Program uses and performance.
