U.S. Representative Al Green slams Texas General Land Office’s latest delay in Harvey’s mitigation funds
U.S. Representative Al Green, D-Texas, said it was “deeply regrettable” and “painful” that due to incomplete documentation, federal funding has once again been denied to poor communities devastated by the hurricane. Harvey.
“(The Department of Housing and Urban Development) requires the state-approved (general land office) to submit their plan,” Green said. “And in that plan, there must be an analysis of how racially and ethnically concentrated areas as well as poor areas are going to benefit from these funds.”
