Texas gets $5 billion grant for Harvey recovery from HUD

Texas will receive a $5 billion grant to help recovery efforts following Harvey. 

Governor Greg Abbott announced Friday that the state would be getting the grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. 

“As President Trump has said from the beginning, the whole federal family is with the people of Texas to help them recover from this devastating storm as quickly as possible,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. “HUD will work with Governor Abbott and his staff to do whatever is needed to rebuild damaged homes and to restore shuttered businesses in some of the hardest-hit areas of the State.”

The money will go towards housing needs as Texans rebuild. 

“Texans hit hardest by Hurricane Harvey face unprecedented hurdles as they rebuild their homes and businesses, and these funds will help them move forward after the storm,” said Sen. John Cornyn.
