Hurricane Harvey - Harris County

Harris County - Direct Allocation

Harris County will receive a direct allocation of $1.115 billion from the State’s allocation of $5.024 billion at the direction of HUD. Harris County has elected to develop its own local recovery programs with the exception of the State’s economic revitalization program.

Harris County developed a local action plan for submission to the GLO for review. Following the review, the GLO incorporated the local action plan, along with the City of Houston's local action plan into an amendment to the state action plan. The amendment is currently pending HUD approval.

Harris County local programs and requirements will be outlined in future State Supplemental Action Plan amendments.
