Dear Precinct 2 Community,
During last week’s Commissioner's Court meeting the Court approved the addition of a site for COVID-19 testing in or around the 76010 zip code area in southeast Tarrant County. The County Administrator will begin negotiations with Catalyst Health Network for testing services at this site. This effort has been a priority of Commissioner Allen’s and in direct response to the expressed needs of our community.
Our COVID-19 data has shown that the 76010 zip code has been greatly affected by COVID-19 and needs a permanent testing site to address the health concerns of our community. A location in this area will enable more residents in east and southeast Arlington and western Grand Prairie to have greater access to testing.
Thank you to all of those who have reach out to our offices to express your concerns for this area and made us aware of your needs. We are listening!
Our Court also recently approved two new Tarrant County CARES Act assistance programs: a Small Business Assistance Grant Program aimed at helping small businesses located in Tarrant County that were negatively impacted by COVID-19 and a Rental Assistance Program for individuals residing in Tarrant County who experienced income loss as a result of COVID-19. Stay tuned for more information and we will be sure to update you once these two programs have launched.
Due to Fort Worth’s population, they received direct CARES Act funding from the federal government for businesses located in and residents living in Fort Worth and interest in those programs must be directed to the
City of Fort Worth Neighborhood Services Department
