RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider execution of an agreement between the Texas Department of Agriculture and Nueces County contract No. 7214085 for the Colonia Fund: Construction (CFC), in relation to the Cindy Park colonia.
BACKGROUND
The goal of the Texas Community Development Block Grant Program (TxCDBG) is to develop viable communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, as well as expanding economic opportunities, especially for persons of low-to-moderate income. The Colonia Fund: Construction allows for the following activities: assessments for public improvements, water system improvements, drainage improvements, wastewater improvements, road/street improvements, and housing rehabilitation.
DISCUSSION
On May 22, 2013, the Commissioners Court authorized the submission of an application for Cindy Park colonia. Under this project, a new water well will be drilled and distribution lines will be installed. Residents will be given an opportunity to tie into the new well, if they so wish, at no cost to them since the project is designed to assist those with low-to-moderate incomes. Proper filters and water treatment measures will be put into place to ensure the residents are receiving safe drinking water.

The grant award is $500,000 and the County will match $25,000 with general administration/in-kind work.
