Hurricane Harvey made landfall on August 25, 2017 causing over $125 Billion in damage throughout Texas. The storm affected 7.5 million Texans displacing over 780,000 people from their homes and flooding more than 300,000 structures.
Project Comeback: TEXAS is a disaster case management program for Texans impacted by Hurricane Harvey. It is the result of an innovative collaboration between FEMA and National VOAD to offer assistance to the unprecedented number of households impacted by the storm.
National VOAD brings five nationally recognized disaster case management provider agencies together to work in collaboration leveraging one another’s strengths. Each of these five agencies works directly with local affiliates who are already providing direct service to Harvey survivors in impacted communities.
To qualify for assistance, survivors must reside in one of the 33 federally individual assistance declared counties in Texas where Project Comeback: TEXAS is serving. Individuals and families without US citizenship are eligible to receive services in this program. Services are provided to all individuals regardless of race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, creed or sexual orientation. To seek assistance, please call The United Way Texas Help Line: 2-1-1. They will refer you to a partner agency working in your county.
