With the help of members of the community, Carrollton has realized many successes in increasing community sustainability.
Community Service Funding was established by the Carrollton City Council to provide requests for funding by non-profit, community-based organizations that provide services to the residents of Carrollton. Each year these community-based organizations may submit an application to request funding for their agencies. The service recommended for funding must be a service which benefits the general community of Carrollton residents, including social welfare services, promotion of the arts and community promotion of the City. Applications must be submitted no later than June 14, 2019 for the funding year from October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020.
The City annually receives funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program to help fund activities designed to assist Carrollton residents of low- and moderate-income people.
The Neighborhood Advisory Commission, or NAC, advises the City Council on matters relating to the Community Development Block Grant Program. The Commission also receives Neighborhood Enhancement Matching Grant Program proposals from neighborhoods.
This grant program is aimed at providing assistance to neighborhood organizations on projects that improve the aesthetic appeal of the community. Matching grant amounts of up to $25,000 per neighborhood per year can be approved for projects that improve the public areas of a neighborhood.
Significant component of the community are neighborhoods and the various organizations that represent them. Through the registration process, neighborhoods become eligible to apply for a Neighborhood Enhancement Matching Grant and receive other assistance from the City.

Neighborhood Oriented Targeted Infrastructure and Code Enforcement, or N.O.T.I.C.E., allows the City to place an emphasis on improving the infrastructure of the neighborhoods most in need by targeting resources for the designs and implementation of all necessary street, alley, sidewalk, water and sewer line projects in Carrollton's neighborhoods.
The City of Carrollton’s Minor Home Repair Program is funded by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). These funds are awarded to the City of Carrollton by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This program is designed to improve the sustainability of Carrollton and make the homes of those needing assistance safer and healthier.
