Governor Greg Abbott today requested Individual Assistance for Harris, Fayette, Grimes and Parker counties from the federal government. If the request is granted by the President, affected citizens in these counties may be eligible for Individual Assistance grants of up to $33,000 from the federal government, and low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration. If granted, and as further damage assessments are conducted in coordination with local officials, additional counties may be added as they meet federal requirements for assistance.
“As Texans recover from the severe flooding that inundated several areas of Texas, it is crucial they receive the financial assistance needed to restore their communities,” said Governor Abbott. “In facing these challenges, Texans have displayed enormous courage – with more than 1,000 rescues from the rising waters. With much-needed financial assistance, I am confident Texans will continue to overcome the challenges before them as they begin to rebuild their lives.”
