Following the unprecedented flooding Hurricane Harvey caused, many county residents have found themselves on the long road to recovery. To help citizens on the path to rebuild their homes and lives,Galveston County officials have put together a Disaster Assistance Outreach Form, designed to assess damage in specific areas and provide long-term resources to those who need it most.

“It will be months, maybe years, before areas of the county are back to normal,” County Judge MarkHenry said. “The county will continue to provide as much help as we can, for as long as we can and this form will tell us what that assistance needs to look like.”

The form can be accessed by clicking the button on the home page of the Galveston County website, www.galvestoncountytx.gov, or directly at: http://www.galvestoncountytx.gov/hd/Pages/DisasterOutreach.aspx

This outreach form is issued by Galveston County to document damage in anticipation of long-term recovery efforts. Filling out this form does not guarantee assistance. By completing this form, residents may be contacted at a later date as county programs become available.

It is important residents DO NOT use this survey to request immediate direct assistance or disaster relief from FEMA. To apply for FEMA Disaster Assistance, please visit: https://www.disasterassistance.gov/
