The Texas General Land Office (GLO) allocated $100 million in Community Development Block Grants for Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to reimburse homeowners up to $50,000 for certain out-of-pocket expenses incurred for repairs to their Hurricane Harvey damaged home, including reconstruction, rehabilitation or mitigation.

  • The homeowner must be able to provide receipts and/or invoices for eligible repairs.
  • Eligible repairs must have been completed prior to the application launch date of Feb. 28, 2019. Applications are anticipated to outnumber available funds, so apply quickly!
  • Additional criteria may apply.

In accordance with HUD requirements, homeowners are not eligible if:

  • The home is in the City of Houston or Harris County, which will fund repair programs through their respective direct allocations.
  • The home is in a 100-year floodplain, was substantially damaged and is not at least 2 feet above the base elevation.
  • The home is in a 100-year floodplain, and the household income is greater than 120% area median income and homeowner did not have flood insurance on August 24, 2017.
  • Homeowner received prior disaster relief assistance for home located in a 100-year floodplain and did not maintain flood insurance.
  • The home is in a floodway, which is an area designed to flood.
  • The home may also not be eligible if there is lead based paint that was not remediated.
