Houston, Texas: $14.85 million

Project Description

This socially vulnerable community in Harris County, Texas has faced repetitive flooding on 49 National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)-insured homes in Houston. With these homes having 101 loss claims submitted, this project will result in the homes being bought and residents relocated out of harm’s way to higher ground. The flood-prone area will be restored as a natural floodplain for stormwater storage and protect the larger community from future flood events.
