Background and Discussion:

The Texas Division of Emergency Management, serving as Grantor for FEMA, invited the District to submit applications for grant funding in connection with the above referenced program.  The grant, if awarded, will require a 25% local match and receive a 75% federal cost share.  

 

Expected Impact:

This project will reduce the risk of flooding for residents, and therefore, shrink the regulatory floodplain while avoiding adverse impacts to Sims Bayou or to the natural environment.

 

Alternative Options:

The alternative to approving this item would be to fully fund the project using Flood Control District funds only.

 

Alignment with Goal(s):

_ Justice and Safety

_ Economic Opportunity

_ Housing

_ Public Health

_ Transportation

_ Environment

_ Governance and Customer Service
