About the Colonias Program

"One of government’s chief responsibilities is to help Texans with the greatest needs. The Secretary of State’s Ombudsperson Program is a central part of our initiatives to assist needy Texans living in colonias. The program is helping to provide better roads, bring water and wastewater infrastructure to areas that lack these basic services, and improve the quality of life for some of Texas’ neediest citizens." - Governor Rick Perry
