The comment period on the RESTORE Council’s Planning Framework closed on June 19, 2019. The Council members and staff are currently in the process of reviewing the comments and expect to finalize this document no later than early August 2019. The draft Planning Framework document is available at www.restorethegulf.gov.
As a reminder, the final Planning Framework will guide the Council in developing program and project proposals for consideration for funding under the next round of Bucket 2 grant. That round of funding is estimated at $360 million for the five Gulf Coast states. Texas’ appointee to the RESTORE Council, Toby Baker, TCEQ Executive Director, is tasked with submitting program and project proposals for the Council to consider for funding.
To select what proposals to submit on behalf of Texas, Baker will host two public meetings. The purpose of the public meetings is to receive comments on potential project proposals that he will post in late August on this web site. These proposals will be the focus of the public meetings and requested public comment.
