Hurd Stands by Texans to Provide Much-Needed Relief

WASHINGTON, DC – On Thursday, U.S. Representative Will Hurd supported emergency disaster relief and recovery needs in response to Hurricane Harvey’s unprecedented flooding.

The bill will allow the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to continue response and recovery efforts, and be prepared for any additional recovery efforts that may arise. It also includes funding to support the Small Business Administration’s disaster loan program to assist small businesses and homeowners as they begin to rebuild.

In addition, it provides funding for the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Fund to support relief and restoration for housing and infrastructure in the disaster areas.

Rep. Hurd released the following statement regarding the relief and needs:

“To recover from lives lost, thousands displaced, and billions of dollars in damage, Texas needs all hands on deck. Additionally as Irma heads towards Florida, we must be sure that our disaster response agencies have sufficient resources to save lives and minimize damage. We have a long road ahead and I am doing my part to provide much-needed relief to survivors, first responders, and all of those affected during this tremendous time of need.”
