About the Authority


The Sabine River Authority of Texas (SRA) became active in Economic Development as part of an initiative to enhance the economic vitality of the Sabine River Basin (Basin) and to increase the awareness of the Sabine River and its tributaries.  The Basin, made up of all or part of 21 counties, covers a large portion of east Texas and has approximately 650,000 in population according to U.S. 2000 Census figures.

    A large portion of the Basin is rural in nature.  Economic development programs vary throughout the Basin based on community needs and attributes.  SRA is committed to work in tandem with organizations, counties and communities throughout the Basin to complement their existing economic development efforts.  SRA Economic Development efforts focus on four areas to accomplish this task:

  1. Public Outreach and Communication
    Increase the awareness and appreciation of the Sabine River waterways
  2. Community Assistance Program
    The Community Assistance Program (CAP) is part of an Economic Development Initiative SRA started in 2002 to help promote the improvement of the quality and quantity of services essential for the development of a viable community.
  3. Technical Services Assistance
    Build resources and provide a catalyst for regional strategic planning
  4. Economic Growth
    Market the basin to targeted business sectors and prospective tourists
