The Opportunity Roadmap is designed to help Southeast Texas residents and business owners prepare to take advantage of a growing industrial sector in our region. That could mean choosing and obtaining certification to perform a trade, getting a job with local industry or finding new business opportunities. Industrial growth brings benefits beyond construction jobs and direct jobs. By bringing new investment and increased income to the region, it creates a ripple effect throughout the economy in sectors like retail, hospitality, restaurants, professional services and more.
Every success story is unique. That’s why the Opportunity Roadmap includes varied programs to help you improve your life, regardless of where you are starting from or what you hope to achieve. To find a program that might help you and learn more about what’s currently being offered, keep reading below.
