Harris County has been an economic leader for several decades and is the headquarters for several Fortune 500 companies. Harris County also has a higher poverty rate than the national average, with a greater disparity in the number of residents under 18 years living in poverty.
Harris County and Precinct 4 recognize that long-standing inequities have made it harder for some communities to recover from the pandemic, natural disasters, and several economic downturns. We are committed to advancing equity and closing gaps in economic, housing, and education outcomes.
Precinct 4 will invest in programs that provide economic stability for vulnerable families and economic opportunity and development through workforce development for our youth and adults and by keeping the County competitive as a global economic hub.
