The city of Brookside Village will receive $999,834 in Hurricane Harvey disaster grants from the Texas General Land Office, or GLO.
"Hurricane Harvey devastated communities across the Texas Coast," Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush said in a press release. "These recovery funds are critical to improving local infrastructure that will protect lives, homes and businesses from future storms.”
Brookside Village’s grants will be for street improvements, facilitating proper stormwater conveyance, providing street access during rain events and reducing the effect of future flooding, according to the press release sent out by the GLO.
A total of more than $13 million in infrastructure funds will be distributed among eight different Harvey-affected counties and municipalities, according to the press release.
“We continue to work with our partners in communities across the region to leverage these resources efficiently and effectively to benefit Texans affected by Hurricane Harvey,” Bush said in the press release.
