Housing and Community Services

The City of Garland's Housing and Community Services Department is responsible for revitalizing neighborhoods by providing safe and affordable housing for low to moderate income households, providing funding to create or maintain a supportive social environment, and expanding economic opportunities to residents of Garland.

Housing and Community Services activities are primarily funded through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnership (HOME) and the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
