WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) announced that the North Central Texas Council of Governments will receive a $20,000,000 federal grant for the Alliance Texas/Haslet Accessibility Improvement Project to construct and extend multiple 4-lane highways. The funding comes through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) grant program.

“This is great news for North Texas,” Congresswoman Granger said. “As a result of this grant, the infrastructure in Haslet will be primed to support future regional growth. I’m grateful to Secretary Chao and the Trump Administration for supporting this important funding in my Congressional District.  I have spoken to Mayor Bob Golden, and he is overjoyed with the award and said it will be important for the City of Haslet.  He mentioned it was a team effort led by Michael Morris at the Council of Governments.”
