Harvey Relief Bulletin
The catastrophic effects brought by Hurricane Harvey these past couple of days is unprecedented. Even if you were lucky enough to sustain no damage to your property, we all know someone who wasn't. Our wonderful community has banded together to assist those in need of immediate attention and continues to support each other. We are so thankful for your outpouring of help!
Your chamber is also stepping up to help you and your business gain some sense of normalcy. From making connections in relief efforts to helping to organize and supply area shelters, we're here for you!
In an effort to keep others notified of available local resources please let us know if your business is open, and what available supplies you may have in stock. We'll help spread the word!
Did your business sustain damage? Your chamber has a vast network of regional, state, and federal agencies we would be happy to connect you to!
We're also looking for available housing in the area. If you are a representative for an area hotel, motel, apartment complex, or real estate agent, please let us know the following:

The goal of the Disaster Assistance Improvement Program is to improve access to disaster information and make applying for disaster assistance easier. This is not just the beginning of the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA's) grant process, but it is also the gatekeeper for assistance from the federal government. For business owners, that assistance will include SBA disaster loans which will be available. Individuals and businesses must register to secure resources. This is an important step of the recovery process that is not well understood.
FEMA, under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), acts as the managing partner. The site allows you to find disaster assistance that meets individual needs, learn more about the 70 forms of assistance from 17 federal agencies, apply and determine status for disaster assistance and reduce applications required, identify a FEMA Disaster Recovery Center, locate a hotel or temporary place to live, find food and nutrition programs, apply for change of address, and learn more about SBA loans for homeowners, renters, and businesses.
Don't hesitate to call the chamber if you need any additional information or assistance.
