ETCOG Board Approves Resolution in Support of the EDA and CDBG Programs

At its April 6, 2017 meeting, the ETCOC Executive Committee Board, comprised of local elected officials, voted unanimously to endorse the enclosed Resolution 17-4; in support of the Economic Development Administration (EDA) and the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.

This Resolution respectfully expresses their consensus opinion regarding President Trump’s recent recommendation to eliminate the EDA and the CDBG program. If the President’s budget recommendations were in fact implemented, the result would be devastating to our rural communities that often rely on EDA and CDBG assistance to help address severe economic dislocation events and address critical community infrastructure needs.

ETCOG’s Executive Director, David Cleveland, has reached out to East Texas Legislators to share the resolution.
