The Colonias of South Texas and the urban barrios are considered some of the poorest areas in the Unites States. The 2000 Census found that Cameron Park, the oldest and largest colonia in the U.S., is also the poorest community in the country. In Cameron and Willacy Counties alone there are over 120 colonias identified by the Texas Water Development Board and an average 85% of the residents are homeowners.
To meet the housing needs of these residents, in 1996 we implemented a Colonia Redevelopment Program. CDCB has adopted a three-part plan to upgrade housing stock that includes rehabilitation, reconstruction, and new housing construction.
