RECOMMENDATION
Ratify the submission of a grant application to the Texas Department of Transportation for the 2020 County Transportation Infrastructure Fund (CTIF) Grant Program.
BACKGROUND
On Feb. 27, 2020, the Texas Transportation Commission (commission) adopted rules, codified as Title 43 Texas Administrative Code §§15.180 - 15.197 (rules), that prescribe the policies and procedures governing the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) implementation of the County Transportation Infrastructure Fund Grant Program (program) under Transportation Code, Chapter 256, Subchapter C. Pursuant to the program, TxDOT will administer a grant program using the transportation infrastructure fund and provide funding to eligible counties for transportation infrastructure projects located in areas of the state affected by increased oil and gas production.
DISCUSSION
Nueces County’s allocation is $285,792, assuming all 254 counties apply for their allocation.  While the application will show a grant amount request of over $20 million, the County can expect to receive an amount similar to the allocation amount.  This grant does require a 20% match, which will be met through in-house design, engineering, and construction and grant administration services.
