The City of Irving makes substantial investments in local nonprofits to provide services for low-income and other residents in need. Funds are provided by federal Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) and, in Fiscal Year 2019-20 and FY 2020-21, CARES Act funds.
In fact, since FY 2019-20, the City of Irving has invested more than $861,000 in CDBG and ESG funds, and more than $810,000 in CARES Act money to local agencies — all for the benefit of Irving residents.
