Fort Worth's Stop Six Receives $4M Investment for New Housing Development

Congressman Marc Veasey and local leaders gathered last week at Hughes House in Fort Worth's Stop Six neighborhood to announce a significant investment exceeding $4 million in a new development initiative.

The investment aims to bolster the construction of a new housing community named after the late Fort Worth basketball coach Robert Hughes. Located centrally in Fort Worth, this initiative is expected to enhance local housing options.

Congressman Veasey emphasized the collaborative effort behind securing this funding, highlighting bipartisan support in passing a government funding package earlier this year. The project's naming after Coach Robert Hughes holds special significance as the community honors his legacy.

Joining Veasey were Fort Worth Mayor Pro Tem Gyna Bivens, Tarrant County Commissioner Roy Brooks, and Dr. Kimberly A. McClain from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Bivens commended Fort Worth Housing Solutions for their proactive approach in transforming Stop Six into a vibrant community hub.

The development will unfold in three phases, with Hughes House I already under construction. The newly earmarked funding will specifically support Hughes House II, featuring enhanced infrastructure, pedestrian amenities, and public outdoor spaces for residents and the broader community.
