The Feds are giving away millions of dollars for Texas' drinking water.

The funds will go to the Texas Development Board who will then allocate the funds to the cities who applied for it.

The grant money will be used for infrastructure improvements to ensure safe drinking water is available.

So far, six counties in West Texas have applied for the funds.

Right now, Colorado City, Presidio, Pecos County and Alpine are on their top priority list.
