Understanding Economic Opportunity in Houston

How opportunity and prosperity flow through our region

Healthy communities are built on a strong economic base. Access to fundamental elements of financial stability such as jobs, credit and entrepreneurial resources are essential to ensuring that all Houstonians can contribute to the building of a vibrant, equitable Houston. While Houston remains vital to the national economy, we’re still working toward greater and more equal access to opportunity at home. By taking steps to reduce income inequality in our region, we can make lasting improvements to our neighborhoods, education systems and financial systems — improving quality-of-life for all residents.

The more we know about economic opportunity in Houston, the more we can do to build a region that provides the economic foundation for all people to prosper.
