Supporting recovery efforts in Texas
Damage caused by Hurricane Harvey continues to impact citizens across the Lone Star State. ICF has been on the ground since January 2019 partnering with state and local officials to help get residents back on their feet and on the path to recovery and rebuilding.
"We are proud to bring our decades’ long experience in disaster management to Texas. We’ve made extraordinary progress working with state and local officials and other contractors on recovery programs. Our priority is always to work in the best interest of impacted citizens.”
-Andrew LaVanway, Senior Vice President, ICF
Texas General Land Office
We provide a broad range of project management and financial services to help the GLO administer recovery funds. This includes developing standard procedures for administering Texas’ housing assistance and local buyout/acquisition and infrastructure programs and helping create efficient financial processes. We also provide a wide array of technical assistance to support GLO staff, subrecipients, and vendors.

City of Houston
We support the City’s Community Development Block Grant—Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program, managing the outreach and intake portions. We make sure residents know about the program, meet with a case manager as needed, and are able to initiate an application for relief funds.

(as of December 2019)
Harris County has 8 CDBG-DR programs. We only support 3 of them: the Homeowners Assistance Program, the Buyout and Acquisition Program and the Reimbursement Program. Of those, we are directly responsible for outreach, intake and the initial application submission process. We do not determine applicant eligibility or run the case management system.
