Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider accepting a subgrant from the Texas Department of Emergency Management for the DR-4223-008 Nueces County Multi-Jurisdictional Mitigation Action Plan.
BACKGROUND
The President declared a major disaster for Texas as a result of damages incurred during the May/June 2015 flooding events. The disaster was assigned the reference of FEMA-4223-DR and funding became available through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP).
DISCUSSION
On December 16, 2015, the Commissioners Court ratifed the submission of a grant application to the Texas Department of Emergency Management for the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) for FEMA-4223-DR.

Due to recent policy changes, the County is no longer allowed to participate in a regional plan as we had in the past with the Coastal Bend Mitigation Action Plan. This makes it necessary to develop a plan specific to the needs of Nueces County.

The grant amount is based on how many jurisdictions participate in the planning process. The base plan is $60,000; $6,000 for each participant and $15,000 for each special district. There are six (6) jurisdictions and one (1) special district that have agreed to participate. Therefore, the grant request totaled $111,000. The federal share will be $83,250 with a required match of $27,750. The match will be provided through RESTORE funding, if awarded. Otherwise, the match will be provided through the participating jurisdictions as follows:

Nueces County $6,500
City of Corpus Christi $6,500
Port Authority of Corpus Christi $6,500
City of Port Aransas $2,000
City of Robstown $2,000
City of Bishop $1,000 (Paid by Nueces County)
City of Driscoll $1,000 (Paid by Nueces County)
City of Agua Dulce $1,000 (Paid by Nueces County)
City of Petronila $1,000 (Paid by Nueces County)
