During the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Fort Worth’s Neighborhood Services Department is developing new and innovative ways to improve the lives of residents.

Here are some recent developments:

  • The city has received additional funds from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, United Way and the Texas Veterans Commission to provide services during the crisis.
  • About 1,600 evening meals were served last week at 20 city community centers. This week, evening meals will continue. Staff will provide families with FWISD educational packets and information to access Community Action Partners programs.
  • The Community Action Partners program will have an online application available to be completed and documents uploaded.
  • The Neighborhood Services Department is developing a process to provide telephone interviews to serve requests for rental or mortgage assistance (for veterans only).
