Gulfton Complete Communities Is…

Gulfton is a culturally diverse, international community with over 50 languages spoken and is home to 40,000 residents. Although it includes two small areas of single-family homes, its large apartment complexes dominate the area’s landscape along with scattered commercial and light industrial uses. Most of Gulfton was originally developed as a rural subdivision called Westmoreland Farms.

Often described as the Ellis Island of current time, Gulfton is the most densely populated community in Houston, with about 90 apartment complexes and 71% Hispanic residents including immigrants from Mexico and Central America.

Gulfton is known for its compassion and services to help newcomers into the country, city, and area. Although traditionally a Salvadoran and Mexican neighborhood, many immigrants have begun coming from different Latin-American and Middle Eastern countries in search of these resources and services.



Houston LISC is offering small grants to support community-led projects, activities, and campaigns. The goal of these grants is to seed community building and improve quality of life at the grass roots level. Grants are for $500-$5000. Ideal applications are for projects that develop civic engagement, community relationship building, and support existing neighborhood plans. We are hosting 2 virtual information workshops for the grants January 13th, noon-1pm, and January 20th, 5:30-6:30pm. Registration is required. Anyone interested in applying for a grant is encouraged to bring project ideas to a grant workshop. For more information, click here. Applications due April 15, 2021.

    The City’s “Corral the Grease” Program

    The City’s “Corral the Grease” program is an education and community engagement program designed to reduce sewer overflows within the City. Sewer overflows from cooking grease and wipes being disposed into our wastewater system is an especially large problem in the Fort Bend/SW Houston area. This problem can be avoided if residents properly dispose of these items, so we are working to educate the area’s residents.
