Every day county governments find innovative solutions to constituent problems, and they do so with limited budgets, technology and even manpower.
They put in the effort to make the most of what they have to improve a situation.
Each year, the National Association of Counties (NACo) recognizes county government’s commitment to better serve their communities through creatively assessing the situation and enhancing current programing or creating a brand new initiative.
"Now, when counties are facing unique challenges because of the effects of the pandemic on county budgets, county health care workers, our first responders and other employees, we couldn’t be prouder of how our members continuously rise to the occasion," said TAC Executive Director Susan Redford.
"We are pleased that Texas counties were recognized nationally for their revolutionary thinking."
Texas county programs that received this year’s NACo achievement awards are:
- Bexar County — A Proven Defense Against Vehicle Title Fraud – The Special Investigation Unit
- El Paso County — Fighting Food Insecurity in El Paso County
- El Paso County — Pretrial Justice Modernization in El Paso, Texas
