The unprecedented scope of Hurricane Harvey had devastating effects on the lives of millions of people in the Gulf Coast region of Texas. Due to the scope and scale of the recovery needs caused by Hurricane Harvey, FEMA reached out to NVOAD to seek a non-traditional approach to disaster case management service provision.
Project Comeback: TEXAS is the resulting initiative. It is comprised a consortium of five nationally recognized disaster case management providers leveraging one another’s strengths to work in collaboration for the rebuilding of communities across Texas.
Each of these recognized national partners is working directly with local service providers. The majority of these partners have been providing disaster response for Hurricane Harvey since shortly after the storm. Their communities already know and recognize them which has provided strength in their trust.
Project Comeback: TEXAS works in close coordination with State of Texas Disaster Case Management Program grantees: Family Endeavors and BCFS to avoid duplication of services and ensure case management services are available to all eligible disaster survivors.
