The Texas Energy Poverty Research Institute (TEPRI) welcomes the support of the Community Development Corporation of Brownsville (CDCB)in addressing low-income energy burdens. The Community Development Corporation of Brownsville is a multifaceted affordable housing organization devoted to utilizing collaborative partnerships to create sustainable communities across the Rio Grande Valley through quality education, model financing, efficient home design, and superior construction.
Founded in 1974, CDCB has been providing safe, sanitary affordable housing to the citizens of the lower Rio Grande Valley, Texas, and is now one of the largest non‐profit producers of single‐family housing for homeownership in Texas. They serve the southernmost area of the United States – Cameron and Willacy Counties, Texas, which shares its border with Mexico on the south, and the Gulf of Mexico on its east.
Edna Oceguera, Deputy Director for CDCB, shares the following thoughts about the partnership with TEPRI:
“The Community Development Corporation of Brownsville is delighted to be a part of TEPRI and to support their mission to inspire lasting energy solutions for low-income communities. We are excited to work together towards this mission moving forward.”
TEPRI looks forward to working with CDCB to lessen the energy burden on low-income communities in Texas. Housing development is a critical piece of the low-income energy discussion, so we are thrilled to have CDCB involved.
