Hurricane Harvey financial assistance workshop planned for Saturday

A workshop will be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at the Garcia Arts & Education Center.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — It's been more than a year since Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the Coastal Bend, and many residents are still recovering.

That's why a special Hurricane Harvey Financial Assistance workshop is coming to Corpus Christi on Saturday. It's being hosted by the Rio Texas Conference United Methodist Church, the American Red Cross, and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi's Antonio E. Garcia Arts & Education Center.

The event aims to give renters and homeowners a chance to apply for financial help to repair the damage to their homes left behind by Harvey. It runs from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at the Garcia Arts & Education Center, located at 2021 Agnes Street.

These are some items those seeking assistance need to have with them at the event:

  • Proof of identity
  • Proof of residence - deed, mortgage, lease/rental agreement, and/or utility bill showing services during August 24, 2017.
  • Proof of damage - FEMA letters, insurance documents, and/or tax office documents showing the property was deemed substantially damaged, uninhabitable, or condemned.
  • Information that shows/describes your damage and describes your unmet needs related to losses from Hurricane Harvey.
  • Digital photos of the damage to the home with timestamp showing that the photo was taken between Aug. 24, 2017 and Dec. 31, 2017.
