Another community helping out

HARLINGEN — The city will begin working with the Brownsville Community Development Corporation to build homes for low-income residents.

The Harlingen Community Development Department will work with the Brownsville nonprofit agency, which will replace the Harlingen Community Development Corporation.

The HCDD found the HCDC in noncompliance last year, citing lack of documentation and inaccurate and misspelled documentation.

The HCDC did not respond to a message requesting comment.

As part of its partnership with the HCDD, the BCDC will receive $442,000 in federal funds to build low-income housing in Harlingen, Tammy DeGannes-Jackson, the HCDD’s director, said yesterday.

“It’s a wonderful partnership,” she said.
