In addition to this, a one-time distribution was made to the Hoback Ranches Service and Improvement District in the amount of $100,000 in support of mitigation and recovery efforts focused on core community infrastructure that will help ensure the safety of people in the impacted areas and allow people to access their properties to clear debris and begin the rebuilding process.
