For the first time ever, the Texas General Land Office is offering a program that will allow victims of a natural disaster to recoup some of the money they’ve already spent to make home repairs.

“This was a massive storm, and there were a lot of people with a lot of out-of-pocket expenses,” Brittany Eck of the GLO said. “It is the first time a reimbursement program has been offered in the State of Texas for disaster recovery repairs to homes.”

The land office will begin accepting applications for reimbursement Thursday. To find out how to apply, click here.
