HOUSTON, TX – It’s all about finding, losing or looking for a job these days, and if you have one, congrats. If you don’t, you’re living in the best city in the country to find one.

Back in 2005, The Greater Houston Partnership set a 10 year goal to help Houston and surrounding counties by raising $32,000,000 and creating hundreds of thousands of jobs. With just 2 years left to finish the goal, the GHP is already thinking of what to do next. This time around the goal is for Opportunity Houston 2.0 to raise $40,000,000 and they hope to do it in just 6 years, not 10.

This is just more good news for our Bayou City. We’re the coolest city to live in according to Forbes, and we have the best economy in the county according to the Brookings Institute.

And you thought we just had the Texans and Mexican food.
