Since starting the program, more than $1 million has been awarded to departments in Texas.  
DISCUSSION
On August 14, 2019, the Commissioners Court ratified the submission of a grant application submitted by the County’s Office of Emergency Management for the Helping Heroes program. 
 
The County was notified of a grant award in the amount of $4,700.  That amount will cover the purchase of two (2) new laptops, charging stations, a portable printer, and mobile hotspots to be used in the field during operations for search and rescue, disaster plume mapping, evacuations, etc.  There is no match required for this grant.  The funds have already been sent to the County via direct deposit.
