Red Cross Immediate Assistance Program

Thanks to generous donors, the American Red Cross will be providing financial assistance to Texas households in Fort Bend County that were severely impacted by Harvey and need help taking care of emergency needs. Right now, the Red Cross is in the initial phase of this effort. On Monday, September 11, they provided $45 million in financial assistance to more than 100,000 households who needed immediate help.

This financial assistance is in addition to the other emergency relief efforts the Red Cross is providing in Texas. The Red Cross is a charity, not a government agency, and people do not need to be American citizens to receive assistance.

Additional information will be shared as it becomes available, including how to register, which will only be available online. Registration will be open for 30 days at:
