Governor Greg Abbott Announces Extension Of Transitional Sheltering Assistance
Governor Greg Abbott today announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has granted Texas' request to extend the deadline for Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) for Hurricane Harvey survivors. TSA helps displaced individuals who are unable to return to their homes find short-term shelter in hotels or other temporary housing locations. The TSA deadline has been extended from April 23, 2018 to May 31, 2018 with a check-out date of June 1, 2018.
"With many Texas families still unable to return home after Harvey, we are committed to ensuring they have a place to stay as the recovery continues," said Governor Abbott. "We will continue to do everything in our power to help Texans get back in their homes and get our communities rebuilt as quickly as possible. I thank our federal partners and FEMA for helping provide this important assistance for those in need."
Disaster victims with questions regarding their TSA program eligibility or status may contact the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 for assistance.
