Houston Recovers-Emotional Support After Harvey


The American Red Cross Immediate Assistance Program is designed to provide emergency financial assistance in the amount of $400 to those Texas households in 39 federally-declared counties impacted by Hurricane Harvey, specifically in those communities where homes were most severely damaged, residents were displaced and life-sustaining services were disrupted. These counties include Galveston, Brazoria, and Matagorda counties. Please push out to our partners, local organizations, and local emergency managers.   Clients may register at 

Registration will be open for 30 days (09/11/17 – 10/11/17) through a bilingual online portal that will enable applicants to self-register for assistance and select from several options to efficiently receive assistance through multiple financial channels. We will be focusing our efforts in the most heavily impacted areas of Texas and will be reaching out broadly to ensure those who need Red Cross assistance are aware of this resource. Tomorrow morning we will share additional details and resources on how to specifically apply but we felt it important you be notified of this effort prior to launch. We hope you will help us communicate the Immediate Assistance Program to your clients/constituents/partners/residents, especially those most severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

If you have any questions, please call at 1-800- 733-2767
