2018 Hurricane Harvey Disaster Recovery Funds Reallocation
Local Infrastructure Amendment for 2018 Hurricane Harvey Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery Method of Distribution of Funds
The Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) is seeking input on an amendment to the 2018 Method of Distribution for Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery funds for local infrastructure projects in the H-GAC region.
The amendment would reallocate $2,305,505 in declined and/or de-obligated funds. Funded projects must directly address infrastructure damage from Hurricane Harvey, and at least 70% of the funds must be used for persons of low and moderate income.
H-GAC will host a public planning meeting via Zoom on November 9 to provide more information on the proposed reallocation amendment. Formal public comments will not be accepted at the public planning meeting but can be submitted online, by email, by postal mail, or by phone. H-GAC will host a public hearing on December 6 in-person and via Zoom that will accept formal public comments.

Note: Only entities located in Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Colorado, Fort Bend, Galveston, Liberty, Matagorda, Montgomery, Waller, Walker, or Wharton counties are eligible for funds. The Texas General Land Office did not include Harris County and the City of Houston in the original 2018 allocation and will not include either entity in this reallocation as they each received direct allocations for local infrastructure projects from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development through the Texas General Land Office.
