The Regional Review Committee for the Heart of Texas Council of Governments is comprised of twelve members appointed by the Governor. These members are responsible for developing scoring criteria that determine funding for projects submitted by cities and counties for Community Development grant funds. In 2010 the RRC adopted criteria that will be used to score proposals in the coming biennium.
Through the Community Economic Development Program, HOTCOG also provides general technical assistance regarding community and economic development including Texas Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) procedures, application requirements and specific community development program activities such as housing workshops, infrastructure provision and financing workshops, grant writing workshops, planning and zoning seminars, general needs assessment assistance and reviews under the Texas Review and Comment System. Members of the Regional Review Committee are appointed by the Governor of the State of Texas.
