Mission Statement

EastPoint is a diverse, bi-lingual 4 square mile area located on the Eastside of San Antonio, encompassing some of the City’s oldest neighborhoods. This culturally rich, transforming and easily accessible community is bordered by downtown and the Pearl on the west, AT&T Center on the east, Fort Sam Houston on the north and the Alamodome on the south with over 6,000 homes and approximately 18,000 residents.

Description

The rate of economic development sparked by business owners and residents in the area was accelerated by the award of two federally funded grants known as the Eastside Promise Neighborhood and the Choice Neighborhood Program. These programs aimed to positively impact by empowering residents, building capacity and encouraging participation in local decision making in the EastPoint community. The City of San Antonio - in partnership with United Way, the San Antonio Housing Authority and the San Antonio Independent School District, along with the aid of these federal grants - continues to drive innovative transformation through various educational, housing, economic and quality of life initiatives.
