Senator Zaffirini Announces Funding for Starr County Improvements

(AUSTIN) —Senator Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo, announced today (Tuesday) that
Starr County will receive a $416,322 Supplemental Disaster Recovery Fund grant
from the Texas Community Development Block Grant Program (TxCDBG). The
grant will allow the county to restore roadways damaged by Hurricane Dolly in
2008. Roadway repairs will take place in the La Rosita, Salineño, West Alto Bonito,
and Las Lomas communities.

“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 Starr County will benefit from enhanced
roadway infrastructure, thereby greatly improving access and safety for residents.”

TxCDBG is administered by TDRA for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development.
