Copperas Cove is a special place to live, work, learn and play. 

Copperas Cove is the ideal Central Texas business location, drawing skilled and high-tech labor from the 800 Fort Hood soldiers exiting the military per month, as well as Central Texas College and Texas A&M University – Central Texas graduates.

Copperas Cove offers affordable real estate, a dynamic workforce, safe neighborhoods, quality schools, abundant recreational opportunities and an overall outstanding quality of life.

Despite steady growth over the past 20 years, Copperas Cove remains rural and friendly with a Census 2010 population of 32,032. While our cost of living is less than 82% of the national average, citizens still have easy access to modern health care facilities and world class education.
