Award Description: Community Development. Supplemental funding to the State of Texas under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Community Development Block Grant Program.
Project Description: This grant provides supplemental funding to the State of Texas under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Community Development Block Grant Program pursuant to authority of Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, (42 USC 5301 et seq.). The State of Texas CDBG program has made awards to cities and counties to finance projects. The Texas CDBG program has sent contracts to the award recipients for execution.
Infrastructure Description: In selecting projects for funding, the Texas CDBG program made its selection of activities with an emphasis on projects that fulfill the intent of the Recovery Act through (a.) preserving and creating jobs and promoting economic recovery; (b.) providing investment needed to increase economic efficiency; and (c.) investing in transportation, environmental protection, or other infrastructure that will provide long-term economic benefits. The other intended purposes of the Recovery Act will be fulfilled through many of the activities that were selected. The activities being funded will create jobs with salaries at the federal prevailing wage level during the design and construction phases. This outcome will lead to an economic job creation multiplier effect within the local economy that will further increase or sustain local employment. The purchase of construction materials and new equipment will support an increase in economic output and job creation nationwide. Additionally, this local investment will increase economic efficiency within the community. Finally, we anticipate the investment in infrastructure will provide long term economic benefits within the community.
