Join us at an Accountability Session with candidates for US Congressional District 23, Texas State Representative Districts 116 and 117, and Bexar County Commissioner Precinct 2 on Monday, February 19, 2018 at 7pm at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church-Helotes (13715 Riggs Road; Helotes, TX).
Less than one year after more than 750 COPS / Metro leaders secured candidate pledges for increased municipal investments in home rehabilitation, leaders are now training hundreds of residents about the new program and how to apply. $9 Million has been set aside for qualifying residents — $6.5 Million from federal funds and the rest through the City of San Antonio.
This effort is a key part of the “Decade of Neighborhoods” campaign launched by COPS/Metro last year.
512 people were trained in just one week.
