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.
