Assistance Still Available for Hurricane Harvey Survivors
FEMA housing programs are beginning to be rolled out across all affected areas. There is a process and each program takes time with permitting, inspections, and verifying what is the best fit for each property and applicant. Below you will find the workflow.
FEMA Housing Programs:
If you have greater than $17,000 in verified loss, which is determined by FEMA, then your information will be forwarded to the appropriate Council of Governments (COG)
COG for Montgomery County this is HGAC Houston-Galveston Area Council.
HGAC caseworkers will work with the affected households to determine which housing they are eligible for, and what is available within their community.
Housing options for Hurricane Harvey are as follows:
Manufactured Housing Units (MHU’s)
Travel Trailers (Recreational Vehicles)
Direct Assistance for Limited Housing Repair (DALHR)
Multifamily Lease and Repair (MLR)
