Investment in Texas communities strengthens the state and its economy. Our role is to monitor and evaluate the state's community reinvestment strategies including the implementation of programs for affordable housing, rural healthcare, small farms and businesses, financial literacy education, disaster relief, insurance, community development initiatives and advocacy for expanded venture capital.
