Red Cross in Rockport, Port Aransas to aid in financial assistance

Posted: Updated:

The Red Cross has set up shop in Rockport and Port Aransas to assist people who were heavily impacted by Hurricane Harvey. 

The most important thing and main goal for the Red Cross is to get hurricane victims approved for a new financial assistance program. 

Now in order to be eligible to receive the $400 of financial assistance, you must a criteria which includes:

  • Having severe damage to your home from Harvey
  • Being displaced from your home for several days
  • Having an immediate need for basic necessities

According to Red Cross officials, delays have been caused by computer glitches and multiple applications for one address. 

"There's six million people in the areas affected by Hurricane Harvey that may qualify for this.  We did not expect that level of response.  Honestly our systems were just completely overwhelmed," said April Phillips, a Red Cross spokesperson. 

Now that crews have set up shop to assist people in local areas, the Red Cross is hoping that more households that desperately need the help will be approved. 

The Port Aransas location, 408 N Alister Street, will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Rockport location, 1409 Hwy. 35 N. Business, will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Red Cross will also be providing meals, water and other supplies, such as clean-up kits, gloves and shovels at each location.

As of Sept. 28, the Red Cross has authorized more than $148 million in direct financial assistance to help more than 370,000 Texas households.

If you are needing to apply for financial assistance from the Red Cross, the application deadline is Tuesday, October 10th. 

Severely impacted households that need immediate assistance can also apply at redcross.org/HHIA.
