Resiliency

Houston’s ability to mitigate historic rainfall has become increasingly critical in the light of Hurricane Harvey and other major flood events in recent years. The need for building extreme weather resiliency is no longer something the region must look to tackle in years to come, improvements must happen now to foster continued economic development and business growth within the region. To ensure the long-term infrastructure and resiliency needs of the greater Houston region are met, the Partnership is committed to working with local, state and federal officials to advocate for flood mitigation funding. Through the work of the Infrastructure and Resiliency Advisory Committee, the Partnership will continue its work of prioritizing efforts on coordinating between government and business groups and advocating for the infrastructure resiliency needs of the region.

The Partnership's Priorities for Resiliency

  • Advocate for local, state and federal funds for flood recovery and mitigation.

  • Improving City of Houston and county street and drainage infrastructure.

  • Continuing work within the Rockerfeller Foundation's 100 Resilient Cities Network, helping cities to build urban resilience.

  • Establish Houston as a global model for resiliency.

Actively Involved

On the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey in August, the Partnership hosted Back to Business: One-year Post-Harvey, where officials shared an update on the region's rebuilding and resiliency efforts with 150 business and community leaders in attendance and 1,000+ online viewers.
