Commissioners Court - Regular
Amendment No.1 to 2009/2010 CIAP Fairgrounds Phase II Project
Maria Medrano, Grants Department
Accept Amendment No. 1 to Grant No. F13AF00079 from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the Fairgrounds and Upper Oso Drainage Control Phase II project, part of the Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) grant program.
The Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) is intended to assist coastal states and coastal political subdivisions within those states that have either supported or been impacted in some measure, directly or indirectly, from Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas exploration and development activities. CIAP is funded with federal royalties generated from offshore oil and gas leases. The CIAP program was authorized by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Two hundred and fifty million dollars will be divided annually from fiscal years 2007 through 2010 among the coastal states of Alabama, Alaska, California, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
On December 12, 2012, the Commissioners Court accepted a grant award for the Fairgrounds and Upper Oso Drainage Control, Phase II project. The goal of the project is to continue improving the water quality in the Oso Creek watershed by improving and alleviating some of the most critical flooding areas in the northwest area of watershed that connect directly with Oso Bay.
The County requested an extension because this project coincides with a Phase I project in which some elements overlap. In addition, there were some slight delays due to the engineer’s need to coordinate with both the drainage district and the city of Robstown since the project is located within both jurisdictions.
Amendment No.1 extends the grant period from December 31, 2014 to September 30, 2015. There is no fiscal impact related to this agenda item. The total amount of the grant award remains at $427,014 with no match required.
