Press Release

August 11, 2022 (Arlington, Texas) – The City of Gordon has begun work to update and repair its Water Treatment Plant’s filtration and treatment systems. The changes are necessary to provide treated water for all residents. The work is utilizing funds received from a 2021 grant from the Community Development Fund, which is a category of the Texas Community Development Block Grant program. The block grant program is administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture.

The Texas Community Development Block Grant program plays a critical role in helping smaller communities in Texas meet their infrastructure needs. Since 1974 the block grant program has supported the development of viable communities by providing decent housing and suitable living environments. The program also seeks to expand economic opportunities, principally for people of low to moderate income.

The fund has generated the following benefits in North Central Texas in the last 10 years:

  • Provided grant funds to 88 communities
  • Funded 218 projects
  • Benefitted more than 170,000 residents
  • Awarded more than $50 million

The North Central Texas Council of Governments assists the Texas Department of Agriculture
in administering the Community Development Fund for rural communities in the region.
