Cool New Web site

I am pleased to announce the Texas Department of Agriculture’s “Retire In Texas” Web site. It has a new look and feel for active retirees researching their retirement destination. You can visit the site at www.retireintexas.org.

Making Texas the number one retirement destination in the country requires utilizing the Internet in a way that is appealing to retirees. Our site offers retirees in-depth information on our GO TEXAN Certified Retirement Communities.

The GO TEXAN Certified Retirement Community (CRC) initiative is a marketing tool for rural Texas communities to encourage retirees and potential retirees to make their homes in areas of the state meeting the criteria for certification by the Texas Department of Agriculture. GO TEXAN CRC also encourages Texas tourism while promoting the state as a desirable destination for retirees and potential retirees both in and outside Texas.

The program has recently certified its 13th community and is expecting to certify at least five more by the end of August 2008. Each certified community is profiled on the “Retire in Texas” Web site along with information regarding Texas heritage and history, state tax structure, military information, and available resources. The site also provides an opportunity to register with TDA for updates regarding the program and more in-depth community information.

To find out how your community can become a GO TEXAN CRC member call 1-800-TELL-TDA
