Texas Disaster Assistance Info

As a result of the ongoing flooding and storm damage, Texas has been declared a major disaster area by the federal government. This means funding is now available for affected individuals, including business owners, in Harris, Hays, and Van Zandt counties. 

According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, assistance may include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster.

Damage surveys are ongoing, so additional counties may be designated for assistance once assessments are completed.

To begin applying for assistance please visit: http://www.DisasterAssistance.gov
If you do not have internet access you can call:
1-800-621-3362 or 1-800-462-7585 (TTY)

These toll-free telephone numbers will operate from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. CT seven days a week.

Immediate needs (shelter, food, clothing, cleaning supplies, etc.) will continue to be available locally in San Marcos and Wimberley. Residents of Blanco and Caldwell counties who were affected are welcome to get help through these local services, however, those counties are not part of the current federal disaster declaration.
