Homeowner Reimbursement Program

The GLO will administer the Homeowner Reimbursement Program to eligible homeowners impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

This program will provide $100 million to allow homeowners to apply for reimbursement funds of up to $50,000 for personal costs incurred to repair their home. To be eligible for this program, the home must have been the owner’s primary residence.


As part of the application process, homeowners will be asked to:

  • Submit receipts for all repairs made on the home detailing what work was performed;
  • Submit financial documentation regarding the source of payment for repairs;
  • Certify any, and all disaster assistance received following Hurricane Harvey; and
  • Submit documentation indicating that damages were caused by Hurricane Harvey.

All repairs must be completed prior to the submission of an application by the homeowner, and each home will be required to undergo an environmental review prior to the disbursement of any funds.

This program is available to homeowners within the following counties: Aransas, Austin, Bastrop, Bee, Brazoria, Burleson, Caldwell, Calhoun, Chambers, Colorado, Comal, DeWitt, Fayette, Fort Bend, Galveston, Goliad, Gonzales, Grimes, Guadalupe, Hardin, Jackson, Jasper, Jefferson, Jim Wells, Karnes, Kleberg, Lavaca, Lee, Liberty, Madison, Matagorda, Milam, Montgomery, Newton, Nueces, Orange, Polk, Refugio, Sabine, San Augustine, San Jacinto, San Patricio, Tyler, Victoria, Walker, Waller, Washington, Wharton.
