Published on November 09, 2017 by Larry Crippen

Governor Abbott met with White House and Office of Management and Budget officials as well as U.S. Senate and House leaders, including Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, and the Texas Congressional delegation, in Washington, D.C., to request $61 billion in expedited federal funding for repair of public infrastructure damaged by Hurricane Harvey and the flooding that followed. Congress is expected to consider the next appropriation in the upcoming weeks.

$6.7 billion in federal funds have been provided directly to Texans, including FEMA grants to households, National Flood Insurance Program claims payments and SBA disaster loans, as of Nov. 1.

885,222 individual assistance applications have been received as of Nov. 1. FEMA’s deadline to register for Individual Disaster Assistance is now Nov. 30, 2017
