The Texas General Land OfficeCommunity Development and Revitalization (GLO-CDR) is hosting a survey to gather input from local officials, councils of government, and river authorities for its Disaster Recovery Planning Studies Survey for Mitigation Funding. The survey requests input on planning study topics for areas that received a presidential disaster declaration resulting from the 2015 Floods, the 2016 Floods or Hurricane Harvey.

The survey will compile a list of planning study topics local leaders would like to prioritize using for federal mitigation funding to lessen the impact of future disasters. GLO-CDR will concentrate on regional approaches in addition to specific local solutions to promote sound long-term recovery. Planning topics include:
  • Drainage improvements
  • Resilient housing solutions
  • Economic development
  • Infrastructure improvements

The survey will be open until June 30. Please note, the survey is only available to elected officials representing areas that received a presidential disaster declaration, as outlined in the State of Texas Mitigation Action Plan. This survey is not intended for the general public.
