I forget the statistic exactly but I think almost ALL of Galveston County’s government subsidized housing is in Galveston, this despite the fact the vast majority of people who reside in the county live on the mainland.  League City is by far the largest city within the county (population north of 100K), with Texas City also being a big population center.  These two also have greater access to a larger base of jobs than what is solely on Galveston Island, which, aside from the port and UTMB is highly dependent upon tourism.

the linked news item says this is being done by the city of Galveston, not Galveston County.
