At their Monday, Dec. 17, regular meeting, Missouri City council members authorized staff to continue the application process to utilize the Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery Hurricane Harvey infrastructure funding through the Texas General Land Office in the amount of $954,306, and opened the 30-day comment period for citizen participation.

The grant funds are provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for recovery from Hurricane Harvey and is being disbursed through the GLO.

City staff has notified GLO of the City’s intent to use the CDBG-DR funds for the Cangelosi Detention Improvement project. This project is currently identified within the city’s 5-year Capital Improvement Program and is estimated to cost approximately $2 million (design and construction) to implement.


The broad scope of work includes channel widening and raising the embankment of the existing channel/detention facility. This project when implemented will alleviate flooding in the contributing watershed in addition to accommodating new developmental projects. As a requirement of allocating these funds, this project location falls within the CBDG eligible program boundary area.
