Travis County Economic Development & Strategic Investments

Social Services Dashboard

Thanks for checking out the Social Services Dashboard! The data for this page is under construction. A team is working hard to identify the right data to help tell the story of the impact to our fellow Travis County residents and our recovery needs. Until then, check out the resources available for basic social supports and come back regularly. Resources are updated as more programs become available.

A team of dedicated folks are working to pull relevant Social Services data together. We hope to bring this to you in late August. If you have suggestions, email the Economic Recovery Team.
