Commissioner Miller Announces $240,000 Grant Award to Grow Jobs in Colorado City (4/22/2015)

AUSTIN - Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller today announced the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) has awarded $240,000 to Colorado City for water and sewer infrastructure improvements, along with engineering and administrative services, through the Texas Capital Fund (TCF). The award will support Colorado City Lodging GP, LLC in their efforts to build a new Holiday Inn Express hotel. Through these efforts, 12 new full-time jobs will be created.

“The Texas Capital Fund is a smart investment that grows jobs and rejuvenates local economies across Texas,” Commissioner Miller said. “This award will help enhance economic development in Colorado City, and I salute these efforts to support business expansion.”

Federally funded through the Texas Community Development Block Grant program, TCF provides more than $8 million in competitive awards each year to boost economic development in small Texas communities.

TCF is administered by TDA’s Office of Rural Affairs and provides funding for projects in four different program areas: Infrastructure Development, Real Estate Development, Main Street Improvements and Downtown Revitalization.
