Industry Day showcases projects to potential contractors

In early September, the Flood Control District team hosted an Industry Day event to share information on upcoming opportunities associated with the Community Block Development Grant (CDBG) programs with the consultant and contracting communities. The Flood Control District will be soliciting proposals for support of flood risk reduction efforts funded through the CDBG Disaster Recovery and Mitigation Programs.


Several hundred contractors and consultants attended the event and heard from the Texas General Land Office, Harris County Purchasing Department, Harris County Engineering Department, Harris County Department of Economic Equity and Opportunity, and the Community Services Department.
