2016 Floods - Brazoria County

Parts of Brazoria County sustained significant property damage and regional flooding during the 2016 flooding events and received a Presidential disaster declaration. As part of the declaration, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocated funds to the state of Texas through the GLO for long-term recovery in the form of Community Development Block Grant disaster recovery (CDBG-DR) funds.

Brazoria County Method of Distribution

As a HUD-designated “most impacted county,” Brazoria County was initially allocated $15,807,714 in CDBG-DR funds for long-term recovery. An additional allocation was awarded to Brazoria County in the amount of $1,182,820. Per the submitted and GLO-approved MOD, funds that are de-obligated and/or cost savings realized from completed projects will be reallocated to Brazoria County for other eligible projects. Any additional allocations will be used for infrastructure projects.
