The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) proposes to work in collaboration with the Texas Governor's Office to assist local Texas coastal communities that were severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. As nature-based tourism is one of the largest economic drivers for Texas coastal communities, the rebuilding of tourism is imperative to improving the economy while benefiting the environment and ecological systems.
