Disaster Recovery

DETCOG works with the Texas General Land Office (GLO) and our local cities and counties 

to repair damages and rebuild lives following  hurricanes and other natural disasters.

 

Citizens Asked To Report Damages

Governor Abbott has announced a statewide effort to collect damage assessment data for this unprecedented winter storm. This information is being collected to help officials across the state gain an understanding of damages for individuals throughout Texas.

 

Our objective in this effort is to demonstrate the scale of this disaster at the local level.  To be successful, we need residents of Deep East Texas who have suffered damages from the winter storm to report your damages online.

 

The success of this effort will help determine the types and amounts of federal recovery aid that will be available to your community.  Thank you for participating!
