EDA Performance Statement

The City of San Benito anticipates creating a sustainable attraction for culture, education, entertainment, and economic development that will enhance the quality of life for residents in San Benito and surrounding areas. The proposed Cultural Heritage Museum will provide quality services and experiences to diverse audiences. It will meet the needs of three existing San Benito non-profits: The San Benito History Museum, the Texas Conjunto Hall of Fame & Museum, and the Freddy Fender Museum. For the past 17 years, these organizations have worked closely with the City of San Benito to maximize their resources. Together they demonstrate a significant dedication to preserving and sharing San Benito's rich history.
