Community Aid

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CSLAP has provided over $12,000 in financial assistance to families struggling with technology & WI-FI access, food, housing, and transportation.

 

From April 2020 to June 2021, CSLAP Community Aid uplifted Hidalgo County students and residents by filling in the gaps of existing federal, state, college, and local programs that otherwise deemed our applicants ineligible for financial relief.
