Future of the Region South Texas



Council of Governments

South Texas Region


The State of Texas divides into 24 regional councils, each council groups several counties and is headed by local governments that coordinate with each other and with state and federal entities on programs and services that cross jurisdictional boundaries.

The councils are valuable aids to local governments in Texas, helping cities and counties solve challenges in homeland security, communications, environment, and health issues, as well as, fostering economic development by bolstering efficiency and cooperation accross borders.

Future of the Region South Texas (FORST) is an economic development think tank comprised by 47 counties. Founded by Senator Judith Zaffirini and former San Antonio Mayor Henry Cisneros with the purpose of helping to build a prosperous South Texas.
