HOUSTON (CW39) – Roads turn to rivers in August as North Texas is hammered by heavy rains. Now federal aid can help people affected by heavy rains.
Governor Greg Abbott today asked the Texas Department of Emergency Management to work with the U.S. Small Business Administration to determine the state’s eligibility for aid following a major flood in northern Texas. Texas last month.
After reviewing damage assessment information provided by Texans using the Texas Individual Assessment Tool (iSTAT), state and local officials determined that flood damage was sufficient to satisfy to the SBA statement.
“The State of Texas is grateful to all North Texas residents affected by the August floods who submitted damage information through a self-reported damage survey,” the governor said. Abbott. “This information helps local and state officials determine eligibility for federal assistance, and we are working quickly to help Texans and ensure our communities have all available state and federal resources to recover.”
State officials estimate that more than 75 of more than 1,200 filings with the iSTAT reporting tool provide sufficient damage to make Dallas and neighboring counties eligible for federal disaster assistance through the SBA.
If approved, federal disaster assistance will be provided through the SBA to affected Texans in Dallas and Collin, Denton, Ellis, Kaufman, Rockwall and Tarrant counties. The program will provide long-term, low-interest loans to eligible Texans through the SBA’s Disaster Assistance Program.
