The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) grants funds to rural Texas cities and counties for basic infrastructure projects such as water/wastewater facilities, street improvements and drainage. Each of Texas' 24 regional councils, known as Council of Governments, has its own Regional Review Committee (RRC). Each RRC is comprised of 12 local elected officials, appointed at the pleasure of the Governor. The role of each Regional Review Committee is to participate in the process for determining regional scoring priorities for projects funded through the Texas CDBG's Community Development Fund, and is responsible for developing the objective scoring criteria.
The H-GAC Regional Review Committee will be holding a public meeting at 2 pm, June 18, 2018 at H-GAC (2nd Floor Conference Room D, at 3555 Timmons Ln, Houston, TX 77027) to determine scoring criteria for the 2019-2020 H-GAC Regional Review Committee Guidebook. The public is welcome to attend.
