Sidewalk Grant Program

Sidewalk Grant Program


Under the City of Waxahachie, TX, Ordinances Appendix C Section 3.5 (e) states “All sidewalks in the City shall be constructed, reconstructed, and kept in good repair by the owner of the property fronting upon the sidewalk, at their sole expense.

However, through a new initiative the City will participate with matching funds to assist residents with their repairs. In Fiscal Year 2019, The Waxahachie City Council designated $100,000 for a City Sidewalk Grant Program that can be updated annually, if funds allow. This program is administered by the Public Works & Engineering department, and is designed to provide residents of the City a resource to maintain, repair, or install sidewalks in front of their residence or business.

Under this program, the City pays up to half the cost of a sidewalk that meet the criteria for repair.  After receiving a complete application, the Public Works & Engineering department will inspect the sidewalk. If the sidewalk meets the criteria for repair, the City will share the cost with the property owner on a first-come first-serve basis and as funds are available. This program does not apply to driveways, or driveway approaches, only sidewalks located within the City right of way.

If you  are interested in participating in the Sidewalk Grant Program; please read the guidelines and instructions documents and then fill out the application.
