AUSTIN — Today, the Texas General Land Office (GLO) officially reopened the application for the Homeowner Assistance and Reimbursement Programs (HARP) in the Rio Grande Valley counties of Cameron, Hidalgo and Willacy. Through HARP, the GLO is focused on rebuilding homes damaged in 2018 and 2019 flooding disasters through repair or reconstruction of owner-occupied single-family homes. Additionally, reimbursement up to $50,000 for certain out-of-pocket expenses incurred for repairs including reconstruction, rehabilitation, or mitigation. Repayment of SBA loans is also eligible for reimbursement.

 

"Homeowners in the Rio Grande Valley have faced repetitive damage from devastating flooding,” said Commissioner Bush. “Through the Homeowner Assistance and Reimbursement Programs, the Texas General Land Office will help hundreds of homeowners to rebuild their homes and livelihoods.”
