Austin, Texas – As Texans repair or rebuild their homes damaged by Hurricane Harvey and subsequent flooding, FEMA and home-improvement stores in Brazoria, Galveston, Harris and Nueces counties are teaming up to provide free information, tips and literature on making homes stronger and safer.

Most of the information and the free publications provided are geared to do-it-yourself work and general contractors.

Recovery topics covered include flood insurance, elevating utilities and rebuilding flooded homes.
