- Rental assistance for residents experiencing housing instability due to the COVID-19 pandemic
- In-person job fair for employment with the City’s Parks & Recreation, Solid Waste Services, Animal Care Services, and Gas departments

“We are so happy to provide this opportunity for residents to receive valuable information and services, and we look forward to more of these community events in the future,” Mayor Paulette M. Guajardo said.
District 2 Council Member Ben Molina encourages residents to attend the event. “For families thinking of seeking rental assistance, this event is a good opportunity to go ask questions and get answers about the help that is available,” Molina said.
The Gulf Coast Humane Society will be providing free pet vaccinations, and The Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend will also be participating in the job fair.
