The City of San Antonio Sidewalk Cost Sharing Program is a voluntary program where owner-occupants and the City of San Antonio share in the cost of replacing sidewalks. For FY 2018 (October 1, 2017 – Sept 30, 2018), the City has $250,000 available that can be used towards repairing sidewalks and curbs along residential properties.
At this time, all funds for the Sidewalk Cost-Sharing Program have been allocated. Applications are not being accepted at this time. Please check back with us for future program updates.
The cost share that residents are required to provide will range from 30-50% of the cost to replace the sidewalk. The share that residents need to provide will depend on their residential location. If the property is located in a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) area, as designated by the Federal Government, residents may qualify for the City paying 70% of the total cost of repair. An example of the required match amounts are shown below:
Table 1: Financial Commitment for Sidewalk Repair detached from curb
50’ Length, 4’ Width = $60 per linear foot
Table 2: Financial Commitment for Sidewalk Repair attached to curb
50’ Length, 4’ Width = $68 per linear foot
Measure the existing linear feet of sidewalk along your property line, then call 311 (210-207-6000) to determine the cost sharing rate. 311 will submit all service requests to Transportation & Capital Improvements for investigation and a formal cost estimate.
