RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider adopting a resolution per Texas Department of Agriculture Contract No. 7214025 requirements adopting the following policies and procedures related to the Cyndie Park Colonia project: (1) Citizen Participation Plan (2) Section 3 Housing Policy (3) Excessive Force Policy and (4) Fair Housing Policy.
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 November 18, 2014, the Commissioners Court executed an agreement between Texas Department of Agriculture and the County for water system improvements for the Cyndie Park Colonia.

The Texas Department of Agriculture requires the County to demonstrate compliance with all state and federal requirements to ensure equal opportunity and access to all benefits derived from the TxCDBG program. To assist with compliance of these regulations, TxCDBG prepared a sample resolution and sample documents for grantees to use, which we have now used to prepare the resolution and related documents attached to this agenda item.

There is no fiscal impact related to this agenda item. The grant award amount remains the same.
