The State of Texas will work by your side for as long as it takes to help you rebuild critical public infrastructure in your community — roads, bridges, schools and other public facilities — damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Harvey or the flooding that followed.
Through this site for officials from the impacted communities, and along with our response team located in your county, we will:
- Provide you with current, reliable information.
- Help you navigate state and federal resources.
- Give you access to the expertise of our state agencies.
Together, we will rebuild the Gulf Coast region.
Brick by brick. Structure by structure. Community by community. Even stronger than before.
Because we are Texas.
God bless you all.
Gov. Greg Abbott Commissioner John Sharp
