Building a Legacy of Equity   The City of Houston's Equitable Development Initiative

Our Mission

Every Houstonian should know their neighborhood matters. Our mission is to build one complete city from recovery to resilience by championing the voices of residents that have been ignored for far too long and offering every Houston resident the foundational resources needed to thrive. We work across private, public, and nonprofit sectors to collectively overcome economic, environmental, and equity challenges to transform Houston’s legacy into one everyone can be proud of.

A Message from the Mayor:

“As Houston continues to grow, so does the diverse needs of our residents and neighborhoods. Ensuring that all Houstonians have equal access to quality services and amenities requires a cross-sector approach.

By tapping the strengths of our community members, nonprofits, businesses, and philanthropic partners, together, we can build a stronger and more resilient city.”
