Receive update on establishment of Colonia Self-Help Center in Nueces County pursuant to HB2893.
Section 2306.582 of the Government Code was recently amended to allow for the establishment of colonia self-help centers in Nueces County.  This amendment will become effective September 1, 2021.  Colonia self-help centers, originally statutorily established in certain counties in 1995, provide concentrated on-site technical assistance to low and very low-income individuals and families living in targeted colonias.   Colonia self-help centers are established by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) and operated through local organizations.

Contact has been made with representatives of TDHCA to move forward with the process of establishments.
