Texas Health & Environment Alliance

THEA increased funding from organizations and individuals by more than 20%,
surpassing their original grant goal of 10%. THEA also added three new Board members, surpassing their grant
goal and hire additional support staff. Moreover, although THEA’s original plan was to expand to the Cavalcade
Superfund Sites in the Greater 5th Ward, there was a shift in immediate community needs. THEA reacted appropriately by
addressing these concerns and beginning work on the Jones Road superfund site.
