Community Connections Resource Fair

Community Connections Resource Fair

Austin Energy invites non-profit, state, and local government agencies to participate in our annual Community Connections Resource Fair.

Activities and Exhibits

This annual event is a free, family-oriented community fair for low-to-moderate income families who sometime struggle to meet their basic needs.

We aim to gather support resources from a number of civic and non-profit organizations who can offer assistance, share information, and answer questions in an open and casual environment. Each year we plan for several kid-friendly activities to keep it interesting and fun for all ages.

Exhibitors and Partners

After we assess top community needs and referrals, we contact agencies and service providers designed to meet those needs to participate.

We also invite financial assistance partners, other City of Austin entities, Travis County, and State of Texas departments to participate and share information about their services and resources.

The combination of exhibits, presentations, and kids activities makes for a casual, fun, and informative day, drawing an average of more than 600 individuals to the event each year.
