Resiliency

Houston’s ability to mitigate historic rainfall has become increasingly critical following Hurricane Harvey and other major flood events in recent years. Our economy and our communities depend on reasonable protection from flooding. 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 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 the appropriation, timely distribution of funds and appropriate regulatory framework for flood recovery and mitigation.

  • Continue to work with the City of Houston and Harris County on developing and implementing a resilience strategy, one that continues to improve the city’s and county’s street and drainage infrastructure.

  • Establish Houston as a global model for resiliency.

Actively Involved

The Partnership has studied proven strategies for building flood resilience and built a data-driven case for investment in the state's flood recovery and mitigation.
