Disaster Recovery Center Now Open In McAllen

Local News

A third FEMA disaster recovery center is now open for flood victims in McAllen and surrounding areas. 

From here until early September, flood victims can go to the city of McAllen’s old church winery to apply for recovery assistance, and get answers to any questions. 

Assistance can include grants for home repairs, temporary housing, low cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs. 

“If they have a question, instead of guessing at the question… if they’re here talking to someone face to face, they can get guidance and make sure that all the paperwork is completed properly. We really encourage everyone to com here to the McAllen Disaster Recovery Center.” Says Jeff Johnston, McAllen Assistant City Manager. 

FEMA officials encourage all residents to apply for assistance, regardless of their legal status. Undocumented immigrants who have one child who is a U.S. citizen, may also apply.
