September 4, 2017 | Press Release

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) today granted Governor Abbott's request for Community Disaster Loan assistance for Texas localities impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Texas cities currently recovering from the storm can now receive funding to help maintain their operating budgets and continue their full operations while also focusing on rebuilding their communities. The Governor thanked FEMA for their quick response in helping these cities. 

"The quick and focused work of our federal partners in response to Hurricane Harvey has been essential to the recovery effort in Texas," said Governor Abbott. "These loans are critical to providing cities with the resources and flexibility to recover while still providing important services to the Texans in their communities. I look forward to our continued work with the federal government and thank them for their help on behalf of the victims of this storm."
