Governor Abbott Announces $13.1 Million In Grants To Texas Military Communities

Governor Greg Abbott today announced a new round of $13.1 million in grant funding from the Texas Military Preparedness Commission's (TMPC) Defense Economic Adjustment Assistance Grant (DEAAG) program. Governor Greg Abbott today announced a new round of $13.1 million in grant funding from the Texas Military Preparedness Commission's (TMPC) Defense Economic Adjustment Assistance Grant (DEAAG) program. These grants assist military communities across Texas that may be impacted by any future Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process. The funds will be invested in infrastructure projects and other initiatives to increase the value of military installations in Texas and protect jobs in those communities.

"In Texas, our support for our nation's mighty military is long and enduring," said Governor Abbott. "Today, Texas is the proud home to more than 1.76 million veterans, serving military members, and civilian defense personnel, plus their families. The 15 major military installations located in communities across the state, in addition to the Army Futures Command, add over $114 billion to our economy and support more than 622,000 direct and indirect jobs across Texas. Their missions are not only of the highest importance to national security and the success of our military, they are also at the forefront of innovation in cybersecurity, space, medicine, and more. I look forward to continuing to work with the Texas Legislature, TMPC, and our military communities to support our nation's military and ensure these installations remain unmatched resources for our nation."

This round of funding is in addition to $15.3 million in DEAAG grants announced earlier this year. Since 2015, Governor Abbott has awarded over $111 million in grants to military communities through the DEAAG program.



The following entities will receive FY2022-2023 DEAAG reimbursements


City of Abilene: $300,000 for Security Sensor Installation at Dyess AFB
City of Corpus Christi: $1,611,159 for Wastewater Collection System Line and Manhole Replacement at NAS Corpus Christi
City of El Paso: $850,000 for Bert Williams - Iron Dust-Off Bypass at Fort Bliss
