Bacliff recovery block grant

Houses line Jackson Avenue in Bacliff on Monday, Jan. 14, 2019. County commissioners were briefed about the projects the county could soon pitch to the Texas General Land Office for funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s disaster recovery block grant program. The highest priority project for the grant would pay for about 2,000 feet of street work on Jackson Avenue in Bacliff.

Filling in the “Bacliff bowl” appears to be the county’s topmost priority for the first round of infrastructure funding it hopes to receive through grants awarded for Hurricane Harvey disaster recovery.
