Senator Zaffirini Announces Funding for Jim Hogg County Improvements
(AUSTIN) —Senator Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo, announced today (Thursday) that
Jim Hogg County will receive a $138,097 Supplemental Disaster Recovery Fund
Grant from the Texas Community Development Block Grant Program (TxCDBG).
The grant will allow the county to replace the lighting systems at both the Little
League and Men’s Softball Fields at the Jim Hogg County Park, which were
damaged last year by Hurricane Dolly.
“The Texas Department of Rural Affairs (TDRA) was established to administer
these funds and to provide this critical recovery support to local communities,”
Senator Zaffirini said. “I am delighted that Jim Hogg County will benefit from new
lighting at its softball fields, thereby greatly improving recreational opportunities
and quality of life.”
TxCDBG is administered by TDRA for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
