Lawmakers dismayed by the limited housing funds available for Harvey relief

TDHCA has about $3.5 million available, but that must be divided up among affected counties. Some counties will get as little as $50,000; Harris County will get $1 million

Texas House lawmakers appeared dismayed by the limited funding the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs has cobbled together to address Hurricane Harvey.

A number of members on the dais this week, including Chair Rep. Carol Alvarado, D-Houston, are dealing directly with the damage left by what is now being called the biggest disaster ever in the state of Texas. Today’s hearing was intended to update what various agencies, including TDHCA, could bring to the table in terms of funding.
