Texas General Land Office (GLO) will officially reopen the application for the Homeowner Assistance and Reimbursement Programs (HARP) in the Rio Grande Valley counties of Cameron, Hidalgo, and Willacy. Through HARP, the GLO is focused on rebuilding homes damaged in 2018 and 2019 flooding disasters through repair or reconstruction of owner-occupied single-family homes. Additionally, reimbursement up to $50,000 for certain out-of-pocket expenses incurred for repairs including reconstruction, rehabilitation, or mitigation. Repayment of SBA loans is also eligible for reimbursement.
