Hurricane Harvey recovery administered by the Texas General Land Office is locally led, state supported and federally funded.

The Hurricane Harvey housing program administered through the Texas General Land Office is locally led, state supported and federally funded.
On September 14, 2017, Governor Greg Abbott designated the Texas General Land Office as the state lead for short-term housing recovery in partnership in FEMA. Through this partnership, the GLO is able to provide direct housing solutions for permanent repairs and temporary solutions to eligible applicants. Due to the program being newly developed and administered at the state level, program criteria Continues to change as a result of the GLO and FEMA’s commitment to building upon best practices during this recovery.
By partnering with regional councils of government and local governments, the GLO continues to work hard to help Texans recover from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The GLO is set to provide solutions to all FEMA eligible applicants in Spring of 2018, and the programs are currently scheduled to expire on February 25, 2019.

Long-Term Housing - The Community Development Block Grants for Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program allows the GLO to work with local leadership on long-term housing that not only helps to rebuild a community, but lessen the cost and impact of future disasters. The use of best practices and innovative construction in the rehabilitation and reconstruction of impacted housing strengthens the community and ensures community resiliency.
