Applications for the 2024 Harris County Precinct 2 Partnership Projects are now open!
Commissioner Garcia and team are seeking potential Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) to be funded in partnership with other area agencies to serve the citizens of Harris County. This program applies only to the allocation of Harris County resources: funding for study, final design, right-of-way acquisition and construction of capital projects.
In November 2022, voters in Harris County approved three bond propositions totaling $1.2 billion. The bond package provides funding for Public safety facilities, Roads, drainage, transportation-related program, Parks, trails and partnership projects. The bonds will finance eligible capital projects, including land, labor, materials, and professional services. Since 2020, Harris County Precinct 2 has partnered on more than 49 CIP and drainage projects. The precinct committed to more than $83 million dollars for sidewalk, road, drainage, hike and bike trail improvement projects.
Eligible applicants include Local Governments, MUDs, School Districts, Public Transit Providers, Economic Development Corporations, TIRZ, Management Districts and Public Ports. Other project sponsors must have a letter of support from the owner of the asset or government entity.
Proposed Project must be partially or entirely located within Harris County Precinct 2.
Only eligible costs identified in the project application will be considered. Estimated costs for planning, design, environmental determination and mitigation, right of way acquisition, and construction must be identified in the application.
All project submissions must include a letter of funding commitment or letter of support from the organization’s leadership. Projects within multiple jurisdictions must provide letters of support from each jurisdiction.
Partners must have the decision-making body (i.e. City Council/Board) approve a resolution to commit funding and work with Precinct 2 on this partnership project(s).Precinct 2 will not consider the project for partnership until a resolution has been passed by the partner’s decision-making body (sample template is included in the Partnership Project Guidelines link below).
In order to participate in this program, Partners must update their ordinance or regulations to adopt Harris Counties drainage minimum measures approved by Commissioners Court on May 19th, 2020.
An optional Partnership Project Workshop will be held on January 31, 2024 via Teams. Please contact Jorge Bustamante to RSVP (713-456-9452/Jorge.Bustamante@pct2.hctx.net).
