State Resources Survey of Storm Damage
The Governor announced a statewide effort to collect damage assessment data for this past week's storm event. Information is being collected to help officials across the state gain an understanding of damages for individuals throughout Texas. The objective is to understand the scale of this disaster at the local level.
Charitable Monetary Donations
Waco Foundation, in partnership with the City of Waco, created the Winter Storm Community Relief Fund to provide support to individuals and families who were impacted by Winter Storm Uri and do not have resources for basic needs and vital home repairs. The fund will distribute grants to pre-selected local nonprofit agencies that provide basic necessities like food, electricity and water, and/or low to no-cost home repairs for families in need. For home repairs, costs for materials will be covered by the Relief Fund and highly-trained volunteers and professionals will conduct needed repairs.
