Thousands of Houston area residents were affected by Hurricane Harvey, including many hotel and hospitality industry employees.

In response, Visit Houston, the Hotel & Lodging Association of Greater Houston (HLAGH), and the Greater Houston Restaurant Association (GHRA) have created an emergency employee relief fund.

The Houston Hospitality Employee Relief Fund will be used to assist hospitality and tourism-related employees impacted by Hurricane Harvey and those who perform services of any nature within the industry including hotels, restaurants, theaters, arenas, stadiums, attractions, or any organization that directly sells or promotes Houston as a destination.

This relief fund is intended to provide supplemental support to employees for any financial losses they may have incurred as a result of Harvey.
