Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider execution of a resolution authorizing the submission of a grant application to the Texas Department of Agriculture for the Texas Community Development Block Grant Program (TxCDBG) Disaster Relief Fund.
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 Disaster Relief Fund provides relief of disaster situations where a state or federal disaster has been declared.
DISCUSSION
The Disaster Relief Fund can be used to fulfill FEMA’s required match for Public Assistance. Eligible projects include: repairs to County Road 6 and a bridge that was underwater at Sablatura Park; erosion control measures at Hilltop Nature Park; and repairs to utilities at coastal parks.

The maximum contract amount is $350,000 and the County will match the grant by $25,000 in administrative oversight by the County’s Emergency Management and Grants Administration Departments.
