Community Development Block Grant Relief Funds

Following Hurricane Harvey, Texas was awarded over five billion dollars in Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Apply by County

Harris County and the City of Houston each received allocations of over one billion dollars with the remaining funds being distributed by the Texas General Land Office. Because of the direct allocation to Harris County, residents that reside on the Harris County side must apply directly to Harris County while residents that reside on the Galveston County side must apply through the General Land Office.

Harris County Funds

Harris County will be receiving $1.115 billion in CDBG-DR funds from HUD. The Method of Distribution (MOD) by Harris County allocated $4,405,330 (Infrastructure, non-housing) to the City of Friendswood.

Public Hearing

A Public Hearing on October 1 at the Friendswood Council meeting provided an update on the process. For more information view the Friendswood Council Public Hearing video.
