2015 Floods - Hays County

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), through Congressional appropriation, issued Community Development Block Grant disaster recovery (CDBG-DR) funding to Texas for Disaster Events DR-4223 and DR-4245 occurring in 2015. The Texas General Land Office (GLO) is the state agency designated to administer CDBG-DR funding to counties included in the disaster declarations. As the city of San Marcos received a direct Congressional allocation, it is not included in Hays County’s Method of Distribution (MOD).

Hays County Method of Distribution

In addition to the approximately $7.4 million awarded in 2016, the county has been awarded an additional amount of approximately $4.2 million in CDBG-DR funds. Total funding to the county is now approximately $11.6 million, including non-housing project funding of $7,869,851 and housing project funding of $3,703,459 to support programs and projects that address an identified priority need and primarily benefit low- to moderate-income persons affected by 2015 flooding in the unincorporated areas of Hays County and the cities of Buda, Dripping Springs, Kyle, Uhland and Wimberley.

Any funds not committed or expended will be returned to Hays County for reallocation. If the county cannot identify any projects that can utilize funding, unused funds will be returned to the GLO.
