In September 2021 the Community Council of the RGV (Tip of Texas) became the 4th Emergency Service Escalation Center (ESEC) for 2-1-1 Texas. The Emergency Service Escalation Centers are Area Information Centers (AICs) that contract with the sate to fulfill expanded Disaster/Event-related tasks. ESECs "ramp-up" to 24-hour operations when needed, using trained volunteers to swiftly increase the Network's call handling capacity. ESECs collaborate and manage communication and database-wide resource management functions for large-scale Disaster/Events, with oversight and assistance from the state. When a Disaster/Event becomes too large for the 24 AICs, the state will open the 25th AIC with trained volunteers for disaster events. These trained volunteers are taken from the 4 ESECs in Texas.


The Community Council of the Rio Grande Valley also offers the Health And Human Services Directory Blue Book which includes information on major non-profit and governmental agencies that provide services to the Rio Grande Valley residents and surrounding areas.
