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 Texas Department of Agriculture approved the H-GAC Regional Review Committee Guidebook in July 2016. Non-entitlement communities within the H-GAC region have used the guidebook to develop community development applications for the 2017-2018 grant cycle. The Guidebook can be viewed and downloaded here: Regional Review Committee Guidebook
The 2017-2018 application is available on the Texas Department of Agriculture website. Applications are due February 9, 2017.
