Dear Friends and Neighbors:

City Council Member Greg Travis is pleased to announce that FEMA has agreed to establish a Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) on the hard-hit west side of Houston.  The new center will be located at St. John Vianney Catholic Church, 625 Nottingham Oaks Trail, Houston, TX 77079, and should be open by this Monday or Tuesday at the latest. Typically, DRCs are open 7:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. seven days a week. We will provide more information, such as site-specific office hours and a list of agencies represented and services available, once such information is published by FEMA.

Council Member Travis worked collaboratively with Texas State Representative Jim Murphy, Texas State Senator Joan Huffman, Texas State Senator Paul Bettencourt, and Harris County Judge Ed Emmett to make this a reality.  "I am so proud that we all worked together to serve our constituents.  This is an excellent example of government actually working" said Senator Huffman.  Council Member Travis wants to personally thank Representative Murphy, Senators Huffman and Bettencourt, and Judge Emmett for all their hard work in getting this DRC established.

A DRC is a facility where survivors may go for information about FEMA's programs or other disaster assistance programs, and to ask questions related to your case. Representatives from FEMA, U.S. Small Business Administration, and other agencies are at the centers to answer questions about disaster assistance and low-interest disaster loans for homeowners, renters and businesses. They can also help survivors apply for federal disaster assistance.
