Every two years, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) allocated funds generated by landfill tipping fees to the 24 councils of governments (COG) located in that state of Texas. The COGs use these funds to develop and maintain an array of programs, including an inventory of closed MSW landfills, regional coordination and planning activities, a regional solid waste/materials management plan, and administer the pass-through grant program, among many others.
All 24 COGs are required by statute to issue a biennial report to the legislature detailing the impacts and results of the pass-through grants. The Texas Association of Regional Councils (TARC) takes these reports and condenses them into a Funding Report. The most recent report, releaed in February 2017, highlights the 2016-2017 Fiscal Year. Read this report, and previous years' reports here.
