The fallout from Hurricane Harvey continues to displace residents and stall economic activity in the greater Houston area. The historic storm yielded over 19 trillion gallons of rain, causing 780,000 Texans to evacuate their homes. These numbers underscore the need for a swift, efficient, and agile transition into recovery and rebuilding.
For state and local decision-makers, housing recovery and community developments are key. To ensure that local communities have access to both basic necessities and sustained financial support, Texas must be able to harness federal funds in support of short- and long-term recovery efforts.
No matter how many disasters your community has encountered, the rules of the recovery landscape are always changing. The unprecedented scale of Harvey demands a partner that has deep roots in Texas, with a network of allies/affiliates throughout the state, and ample experience with diverse federal funding resources. That’s where ICF can make a difference.
