Harris County Flood Recovery Repair Permit Available Online

HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS — The Harris County Flood Recovery Repair Permit is now available online to assist Harris County residents living in unincorporated areas of the County with repairing and rebuilding after flooding from Hurricane Harvey.

To repair or rebuild, you need a permit. This is a FEMA requirement to ensure that flood insurance is available to residents of Harris County. Your insurance and/or FEMA will likely require seeing a copy of this permit in order to receive money back.

If you live within the 100-year floodplain and we could not verify that your house’s slab is above the 100-year floodplain elevation, we will need to do a FREE house inspection prior to issuing a permit to rebuild. The inspection should take less than half an hour. Please call us to schedule your appointment at 713-274-3880 or email at

If you live outside the 100-year floodplain, please download a copy of your FREE repair permit by visiting and clicking the link “Flood Recovery Permit”.
