(AUSTIN) —Senator Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo, announced today (Tuesday) that
San Patricio County will receive a $422,234 Supplemental Disaster Recovery Fund
grant from the Texas Community Development Block Grant Program (TxCDBG).
The grant will allow the county to replace aging bulkhead in Aransas Pass and
Ingleside on the Bay that failed to function during Hurricanes Dolly and Ike.
“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 Aransas Pass and Ingleside on the Bay
will benefit from new bulkheads, thereby countering erosion and greatly improving
safety during hurricanes.”
TxCDBG is administered by TDRA for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
