Fort Worth was founded in 1849. It is the county seat of Tarrant County, Texas and home to more than 850,000 people. The city’s population is 40% white, 35% Hispanic, and 19% black.
Around one third of residents speak a language other than English at home. People in Fort Worth earn a median household income of $54,900 and an average wage of $26,000 each year. Roughly 18% of residents are experiencing poverty.
About 42,000 veterans live in Fort Worth. Veterans may experience economic and mental health challenges after returning to civilian life. Homelessness, unemployment, and past exposure to combat may lead to posttraumatic stress, anxiety, and depression. A 2017 study compared the 100 largest cities in the United States to find the best places for veterans to live. Fort Worth was ranked 11th in this study.
In 2017, the Texas Veterans Commission gave Fort Worth’s Community Action Partners (CAP) program a $300,000 grant to help improve the lives of veterans and their families in the county. These funds will be used to assist veterans with utility bills, rent, and mortgage. The program can also connect veterans with local resources for training, employment, and legal aid.
