The key to rebuilding Houston after Hurricane Harvey may reside within a public-private partnership.

In an effort to protect Houston from future flooding, as well as rebuild with the future in mind, public-private partnerships may be an answer to addressing long-term needs for the bustling city. The city of Houston has seen a few public-private partnerships blossom and succeed, including a 2012 P3 that provided over $100 million to transform bayous into parks and trails with help from the Kinder Foundation.
