Infrastructure and Resiliency Committee

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the region's recent flood events, building extreme weather resiliency is increasingly critical. The Infrastructure and Resiliency Advisory Committee addresses the long-term infrastructure and resiliency needs of the greater Houston region and plays a prominent role in informing and uniting advocacy efforts related to securing federal and local funds for flood mitigation purposes. Through 2019 and beyond, the committee will continue to prioritize its efforts on coordinating and advocating for the resiliency needs of the region, as well as affecting the region’s many other major infrastructure needs.

The Partnership's Priorities for the Infrastructure and Resiliency Committee

  • Supporting the development and implementation of regional and statewide flood and resilience plans.

  • Supporting significant investments at the local and state level to leverage federal funding for infrastructure designed to protect both the economy and people from future storms.

  • Establishing Houston as a global model for resilience.
