Texas GLO grants $8 million in grant projects to Matagorda County

Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, Texas State Senator Lois W. Kolkhorst, County Judge Nate McDonald and Mayor Linh Chau announced the Texas General Land Office (GLO) approved $8 million in flood mitigation projects to improve drainage, water and wastewater infrastructure in Matagorda County and the City of Palacios. These infrastructure projects will directly benefit thousands of residents in majority low-to-moderate income (LMI) areas.

“Texas has a great need for better protection against hurricanes and other natural disasters all along our coast and in many inland communities,” said Commissioner Bush. “This need is evident in Matagorda County where improved drainage is vital to protecting vulnerable communities and the families who call them home. These awards represent positive, generational change for so many communities like the cities of Palacios and Blessing that have rarely had access to the funding needed to protect their residents.”
