COLLEGE STATION, Sept. 20, 2017 – An extensive list of resources for those affected by Hurricane Harvey compiled by the Texas A&M University Real Estate Center is available for free online.

The Hurricane Harvey Disaster Resources Guide, includes information on finding housing, food, employment, legal services, and tax relief. It also includes advice on filing insurance claims, applying for disaster relief, replacing lost documents, protecting yourself when hiring contractors, and acquiring crisis counseling or help for managing traumatic stress.

“Let’s say you are past the point of doing immediate remediation, like ripping up carpet or sheet rock. Now what? Who do you contact?” said Real Estate Center Research Attorney Rusty Adams, who compiled the list of resources. “This guide can help you get to the next step.”

One of the most important things to do after a disaster is to move quickly, Adams said.

“Contact your insurance agent or apply for relief sooner rather than later,” he said. “And don’t forget to document everything.”

While the guide is specific to Harvey, much of the information applies to other disasters. However, web links may change as more information becomes available or is updated.

Funded primarily by Texas real estate licensee fees, the Real Estate Center was created by the state legislature in 1971 to meet the needs of many audiences, including the real estate industry, instructors, researchers, and the public. The center is part of the Mays Business School at Texas A&M University.
