The Texas General Land Office (GLO) is the state administrator for billions of dollars in Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery funds (CDBG-DR) provided through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for 2016 Flood Recovery and Hurricane Harvey Recovery. Although the City of Baytown received no direct funding for housing recovery, the GLO and Harris County allocated funds to Baytown for projects designed to rebuild damaged infrastructure, increase resiliency, and promote long-term housing recovery. Some of these infrastructure projects will be administered by the GLO and some will be administered by Harris County with Baytown serving as a subrecipient Currently, the City of Baytown is managing three different infrastructure grant allocations: 2016 Flood Grant ($1,802,857); Harris County Harvey Non-Housing Grant ($6,602,826) and Chambers County Acquisition/Buyout and Infrastructure Grants ($1,833,062 and $1,785,864 respectively).
