League City is seeking feedback and input from residents as it prioritizes projects the City would like to see funded with federal grants.
In February of 2018, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced that Texas would receive more than $4 Billion in Community Development Block Grants for Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) for projects in the areas affected by Hurricane Harvey as well as the 2015 and 2016 Floods. In August 2019, HUD released mandatory rules for the use of the funding, which include a focus on reducing “long-term risk of loss of life, injury, damage to and loss of property, and suffering and hardship, by lessening the impact of future disasters.” The grant funds, which will be distributed by the Texas Land Office, are to be used for large-scale regional projects that will increase the state’s resilience to disasters statewide, protect lives, and mitigate against future hurricanes and other natural disasters.
Before League City applies for funding under the mitigation grant program, it is asking for feedback from residents. Residents are being asked to take a short, one minute survey at www.leaguecity.com/survey .
