Environmental Justice Small Grants Program
Familias Saludables project (Healthy Families Project) is a culturally relevant and bilingual outreach and education project that engages colonia adults, youth, schools, and local governments in working together to address irrigation canal pollution, groundwater contamination and backyard burning. The project targets (1) the colonias of El Conquistador and Lourdes Estates in Fabens and Lakeview Estates/Agua Dulce colonias in Horizon where there isn't any municipal wastewater system and that have a high number of failing septic systems and (2) the colonias of Bosque Bonito and Las Pampas in San Elizario & the Valley Frondoso colonias in Socorro where irrigation canals are highly polluted with used tires and where families tend to burn garbage, old furniture tires/rubber, plastic or other materials that produce toxins on their private properties more frequently.
