GLO pushes ahead with hearings on $4.2 billion in disaster mitigation funds

The General Land Office hosted the first of three hearings on how to spend $4.3 billion in Hurricane Harvey mitigation funds that must be devoted to critical infrastructure upgrades.

A state action plan is due to the Department of Housing and Urban Development in February. During a presentation in Austin this past week, Deputy Land Commissioner Mark Havens said 140 counties hit by the 2015, 2016 and Hurricane Harvey floods were eligible to apply for the funds.
