The Texas General Land Office (GLO), which coordinates the state’s disaster recovery efforts, released a Hurricane Harvey Action Plan for the distribution of $5.024 billion in Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds. The resources come from the first disaster supplemental appropriation Congress passed in September 2017. As required by HUD guidance posted in the Federal Register in February, the draft of the state action plan is open for public comment through April 26, 2018. Texas GLO previously released a State Action Plan for an earlier allocation of $57.8 million, which it submitted to HUD in early March.
