AUSTIN – The Texas Homeowner Assistance Program will host two application fairs in Orange County to assist homeowners still in need of Hurricane Harvey recovery aid. The events are designed to encourage residents to apply the Homeowner Assistance Program, which is providing more than $265 million in housing assistance to hurricane survivors in the Southeast Texas Region.

At each application fair, application coordinators and program representatives will be available to help homeowners complete a program application for assistance and answer any questions. Applications take approximately 30 minutes to complete, and homeowners are encouraged to call 1-844-893-8937 to schedule an appointment at an application fair. Homeowners should also review the Homeowner Assistance Program Checklist prior to applying and bring any required documentation they may have to their scheduled appointment.

Individuals affected by Hurricane Harvey may qualify for assistance through the Texas Homeowner Assistance Program if they owned their home, it was damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Harvey and it was their primary residence at the time of the storm, among other eligibility factors. The program offers qualified homeowners assistance to repair, rehabilitate or rebuild homes damaged by Hurricane Harvey. Applications will be considered for award on a first come, first served basis, according to the priorities outlined in the Regional Housing Guidelines.

Application fairs are scheduled as follows:

Tuesday, March 19 – 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Saturday, March 23 – 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

At Orange Public Library located at 220 5th Street in Orange.
