AUSTIN — Today Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush announced the release of two state action plans detailing the distribution and eligible uses of more than $285 million in Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to assist in long-term recovery efforts following severe flooding in 2018 and 2019 in South Texas and the Lower Rio Grande Valley and Tropical Storm Imelda in Southeast Texas.

"Storms like Hurricane Hanna bring to light how important long-term recovery dollars are to not only rebuilding communities, but increasing resiliency against future storms," said Commissioner Bush. "Through the use of strategic housing and infrastructure recovery programs, we are positioning Texas for a more comprehensive recovery that will truly help communities rebuild."

In accordance with the CDBG-DR requirements, and to expedite the recovery process funding, the GLO will directly administer and oversee the following programs.
