2011 Bastrop Complex Wildfire
Other Recovery Efforts
Federal HUD/Texas General Land Office/Bastrop County
Bastrop County was awarded a $25 million HUD grant designed to assist people with housing as well as assisting Bastrop County with infrastructure protection and repair. This Federal Grant requires zero State or Local matching funds.  The General Land Office is administering the Housing component of this grant.  Currently this project is in the environmental review process.  The non-housing element of the grant is targeting a variety of erosion control measures along the 94 miles of roads within the burn area, the State Park as well as some private lands.  Easements are required by HUD on private lands.  Bastrop County is working daily with the GLO and environmental consultants to move this project through the environmental process required by the National Environmental Policy Act as well as the Endangered Species Act.  We are expecting to proceed with the erosion control projects this winter and spring.
  Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO)/Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA)/Bastrop County
Bastrop was allocated transportation funds by CAMPO to address safety concerns along County roads.  This allocation of Federal transportation dollars requires a 20% match.  Bastrop County was awarded these matching dollars through the TDA.  There are approximately 30,000 stumps that remain in the County Rights-of-Way that need to be ground.  We are expecting to proceed with this project in January of 2013.
