Help Remains After Disaster Recovery Center Closes in Harris County

AUSTIN, Texas – A State of Texas/Federal Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) in Houston will close Saturday, Feb. 10, at 6 p.m. However, help is just a mouse click, phone call or a tap on the FEMA app away.

The DRC that will close is located at: 

Harris County 

Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church

3015 N. MacGregor Way

Houston, TX 77004 

Hours: Thursday-Saturday, Feb. 8-10, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. 

Closing Saturday, Feb. 10, 6 p.m. 

Individuals and businesses in counties included in the Texas federal disaster declaration for Hurricane Harvey and the subsequent floods can still get help by:

  • Logging into their account at DisasterAssistance.gov
  • Calling the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362
  • Downloading the FEMA app, available for Apple and Android mobile devices. To download visit: fema.gov/mobile-app.
  • Visiting any of the DRCs that remain open. Locations of other recovery centers can be found online at fema.gov/DRC.

U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) representatives are still available at all DRC’s throughout the affected areas to explain SBA’s disaster loan program and help business owners and residents close their approved disaster loans. Even though the deadline to apply for a SBA loan for property damage has passed, small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture and most private nonprofit organizations of any size still have until May 25 to apply for an economic injury disaster loan to help meet working capital needs caused by the disaster. Economic injury assistance is available regardless of whether the business suffered any property damage. Business owners may apply online using SBA’s secure website at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela.
