Policy of Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Handicapped Status and Equal Employment Opportunity Statement
Franklin County does not discriminate on the basis of handicapped status in the admission or access to, or employment in, its program or activities. The County Treasurer has been designated to coordinate compliance with the nondiscrimination requirements contained in the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) regulations implementing Section 504 (24 CFR Part 8. dated June 2, 1988).
The County has adopted complaint and grievance procedures regarding its Texas Community Development Block Grant Programs. These procedures outline the steps for a citizen to follow if she/he wishes to file a written complaint about proposed TxCDBG activities. The County will make every effort to respond fully to such complaints within ten (10) working days. Citizens may obtain a copy of these written procedures at the Franklin County Courthouse between hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Citizens may also request the procedures to be mailed to them by calling the County Treasurer at (903) 537-8334.
