“I believe we are beginning to see a positive trend due to the masking order that Dallas County implemented a month ago that was later followed by Governor Abbott and made statewide. The fact that our numbers are down though does not mean that we can afford to relax what we’ve been doing. One hundred percent mask wearing around other people outside your home is critical to our success going forward." - Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins

Collins Road progression

Construction crews continue to make progress on Collins Road from US 80 to Tripp Road. Currently, water and storm-water infrastructure work continues to take place near the north end of the project. Grading work continues for the new northbound lanes.


Towards the south end of the project, progress is being made on a new box culvert, just south of Town Hall.


Please continue to exercise caution while traveling through this area.

DCHHS announces reopening of Emergency Housing Assistance Program for Dallas County residents

The Emergency Housing Assistance Program (EHAP) provides short-term, rental, mortgage and utility assistance to Dallas County residents living outside the City of Dallas facing economic hardship in the wake of COVID-19. Assistance for EHAP is eligibility based and will be processed through a lottery system.


DCHHS will begin accepting pre-screening applications online beginning Friday, July 24 at 10 a.m. and close the pre-screening application process on Thursday, Aug. 20, at 4 p.m. The pre-screening application form is available in English and Spanish. Individuals who do not have access to the internet or are unable to access the pre-screening application online may call 214-819-1968. Pre-screening applications accepted by phone will be conducted Monday - Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please note that the submission of a pre-screening application does not guarantee eligibility or an offer of assistance. Only completed applications meeting eligibility requirements, and supported by required documentation, will be considered for assistance based on the availability of funds. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older to apply.


“Given that we are encouraging families to stay home as much as possible right now, keeping people in their homes is especially critical,” said DCHHS Director, Dr. Philip Huang. “As we continue to fight this virus, EHAP will help thousands of Dallas County families in need.”
