To whom it may concern:

Pursuant to the Texas Public Information Act, the City of Houston provides the Houston CVE Program Narrative, which includes an Executive Summary, Technical Merit, Needs Analysis, Expertise, and Budget Detail and Narrative. Please note that the narrative is an application, not a grant award. While the Department of Homeland Security has made preliminary announcements regarding awards, the City of Houston has not yet received an official award statement. Please note the proposed budget in the narrative is more than the reported award amount.
