GLO CDBG-DR 4332 Infrastructure funds

In June of 2019, the City applied for GLO CDBG-DR 4332 Infrastructure funds that would support Hurricane Harvey infrastructure recovery projects within the City.  At that time, the City’s application listed the following projects:

 

CDBG-DR Project Internal Project #
Coopers Gully Channel (Phase 2) CDBG-DR 4332-1
West Side Water Distribution CDBG-DR 4332-2
Fire Protection Equip – HC Pumper CDBG-DR 4332-3
Fire Protection Equip – HC SAR Vehicles CDBG-DR 4332-4
FM 105 Box Culverts CDBG-DR 4332-5
Turrett Water Storage Tank CDBG-DR 4332-6
Meeks Water Storage Tank CDBG-DR 4332-7
Fire Protection Facilities – Old Station #3 CDBG-DR 4332-8
CDBG LMI Acquisition CDBG-DR 4332-9

 

After reviews from the GLO, we have determined it is the best interest of the City to remove the Fire Protection Facility project 4332-8 from the application. This was a storm rehabilitation project for old fire station 3.  These funds are to be shifted to the West Side Water Distribution Project 4332-2. 

 

In accordance with the City’s Action Plan this change is being submitted for public review for the required fourteen (14) days.

 

  1. AMENDMENTS TO ANNUAL ACTION PLAN
  2. The City/ORHC shall amend its Annual Action Plan whenever a substantial change occurs in activities.
  3. Substantial change to the Action Plan shall be defined as elimination of an activity; addition of an activity not previously included; revision of an activity, which will drastically change the purpose, scope, location or beneficiaries; or a change in the project cost by 50% or more.

National Flood Insurance Program Outreach

Anywhere it rains, it can flood.

Did you know:

  • Approximately 80% of Hurricane Harvey damaged properties did not have flood insurance; 65% of those homes were not in a high-risk flood zone
  • $6,000 was the average FEMA Harvey claim pay-out without flood insurance
  • $116,000 was the average pay-out for Harvey with flood insurance (as of October 2018)
  • One inch of flooding can cause $25,000 worth of damage in your home

Please consider adding the below flood insurance-related links to your website, community newsletter, blog and social media sites to help citizens become financially prepared for a flood. FEMA encourages all homeowners and renters to purchase flood insurance.

  • gov for information on how to purchase flood insurance
