Local, state and nonprofit agencies and organizations in Texas seeking reimbursement for Hurricane Harvey expenses have until 5 p.m. Oct. 31, 2017 to submit their requests to the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM).
Eligible applicants are reimbursed for disaster-related costs for emergency response, debris removal and permanent work such as repairs or replacement of schools, roads, bridges and other public infrastructure. The federal cost-share for all categories of Public Assistance is 90 percent.
To download the RPA form, go online to https://grants.dps.texas.gov/site/PA.cfm and click on Forms, or contact the TDEM district coordinator. The form is one-page long and should take about 10 minutes to fill out. All information on the form must be completed. Return the form to: TDEMrecovery.email@example.com.
Submission of the reimbursement request notifies the State of Texas and FEMA that the applicant has sustained damage caused by the hurricane and its aftermath.
Infrastructure repair reimbursement is not for individuals or families. They may be eligible for help through FEMA’s Individual Assistance program.
