The Houston-Galveston Area Council, in collaboration with the Gulf Coast Economic Development District, is developing a new Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy.
This strategy will:
- Shape the economic growth and development of our region through the next five years.
- Focus on supporting the growth and success of small businesses, education and workforce training providers, and communities.
- Promote diversity and equity.
- Align our region's economic goals
- Establish a detailed action plan, allowing the region to compete for federal funding.
Benefits of Federal Funds
Federal funds offer several benefits to our region, including:
- Enabling local businesses to secure the necessary funding for their growth and sustainability.
- Providing funds to our communities for disaster relief and mitigation, allowing our region to thrive
- Supporting the expansion of education and job training programs in our local colleges, universities, and vocational schools, developing and preparing our future workforce.
We can't do this alone! If you are a
- Small-business owner looking to expand,
- School and training program administrator connecting students with good, high-paying jobs, or
- Economic development professional in local government,
We want to hear from you! Your ideas and feedback will make our region’s strategy even better.
Join us at one of our stakeholder workshops and share your vision for the future of our community.
