The Traffic Signal Control Cabinet (TSCC) Art Program (TSCC) is an initiative to bring public art to more neighborhoods in the city of Houston. The program is overseen by the City of Houston Department of Public Works and Engineering (PWE) and the Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs (MOCA).

The HCSO graffiti reduction program is designed to remove unwanted graffiti marks from communities in Harris County.
The HCSO has nearly 5,100 employees and 200 volunteer reservists dedicated to ensuring the safety of more than 4.1 million residents living in Harris County. Elia credits partnerships with the city of Houston, administrative districts and other organizations for the growth of the Houston wall art scene over the past decade. The Office of Cultural Affairs of the Mayor's Office is the point of contact for the program and coordinates with all the entities and offices of the City Council the murals programmed for the municipal districts. Muralists from around the world, including three from Houston, painted a series of murals in nine downtown buildings with the goal of inspiring social and environmental change.

The art project awards are open to artists who have resided in Harris County for at least two full years before the month of August. There were pervasive requests to improve and activate green spaces in the East End, particularly for the use of young and elderly residents.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office, founded in 1837, is the largest sheriff's office in Texas and the third largest in the country. The plan's main recommendations include revitalizing Talento Bilingual in Houston, an English-Spanish bilingual theater in the Second Ward, updating the adjacent Plaza de Guadalupe with an outdoor stage and launching “Calle de Colores”, which translates as “Street of Colors”, along the navigation, transforming the kilometer-long stretch of warehouses into empty canvases available for street art, festival programming and, of course, more murals.
