Questions are being raised about a $2 million public grant to a private contractor to build a 26-home affordable housing development in Texas City.

Under the terms of the contract, DSW Homes will receive just more than $2 million of the county’s share of Hurricane Ike recovery money for a promise to make the units available to people who qualify for public housing in the first 10 years after the development is built.
