HOUSTON - Eligible Harvey survivors receiving shelter assistance may receive an extension for their hotel stays, according to FEMA.

Those with a continuing need for the hotel sheltering program may be extended to January 16, 2018. However, there is a mid-term eligibility review on Dec. 12 where survivors participating in the program will receive a phone call, email, and/or text message advising them if they have continued eligibility for assistance through a participating hotel.

Hurricane Harvey survivors who recently applied for assistance will be notified automatically of their eligibility. To be considered for eligibility, disaster survivors must be registered with FEMA for disaster assistance, and meet other eligibility criteria.
