With hurricane season around the corner, Commissioner Bush files Harvey housing action plan

With Congress moving at a snail’s pace on this and just about everything else, it doesn’t appear many communities ravaged by Harvey will see money before this fall

Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush this week filed a State Action Plan with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to outline uses for $5 billion in community development block grant funds that will come to the state in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

The 200-page State Action Plan was filed this week with HUD, Bush told the House County Affairs Committee Thursday morning.

Now the federal department has up to 45 days to review and act upon the plan so that the fund can be drawn down for reimbursements.
