Texas is not only the second largest state in the US but also has the second highest total population as well. In 2016, an estimated 28 million Americans were also Texas residents living in both densely populated urban areas and rural settings characterized by large distances between neighbors. Race and ethnicity also varies significantly across the state as well with high Latino populations along the US/Mexico Border and more African-Americans in metropolitan locations.
The SCAETC Central Office is located in Dallas, TX, and provides administration and oversight for all activities undertaken in the region. From this ideal location in the center of the region itself, the Central Office enters into contracts with local providers across all five states, provides assistance and guidance when needed, and ensures the completion of grant-related goals and tasks.
Texas LPS (partner sites)
In Texas, multiple partner sites provide local activities for their specific area. Currently, active partner sites handle the El Paso area, the Panhandle, the North Texas area, the Southeast Texas area, and the Rio Grande Valley. Central Texas coverage occurs through cooperation from multiple partners, although the SCAETC is actively researching the possibility of contracts with local agencies to meet the demand.
