Homeowner Reimbursement Program

The GLO allocated $100 million in Community Development Block Grants for Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds to reimburse homeowners for up to $50,000 in out-of-pocket expenses for eligible repairs to their Hurricane Harvey damaged home.

Residents of the 48 Hurricane Harvey designated impacted counties will be encouraged to apply.

Eligible 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, and Wharton.

The City of Houston and Harris County are not eligible for this program. They will have local programs available for homeowners.

To be eligible for this program, the home must be the owner’s primary residence and eligible repairs must have been completed prior to the application launch date of Feb. 28, 2019. Applications are anticipated to outnumber available funds, so apply quickly!

Applicants may be required to provide proof of damage from Hurricane Harvey, provide receipts and/or invoices for eligible repairs.

All activities under this program will be conducted according to the GLO’s Housing Guidelines which outline the limitations for repairs, environmental regulations, and other rules that the GLO must follow in administering this program.
