Counties included in the declaration are Hidalgo County and its contiguous counties: Brooks, Cameron, Kenedy, Starr, and Willacy counties.

“This disaster declaration will help South Texas communities affected by storm damage last month receive critical financial assistance needed to recover,” said Governor Abbott. “I thank the Texas Division of Emergency Management for working closely with the U.S. Small Business Administration to determine that the eligibility requirements were met for Hidalgo County and surrounding counties. Working together, Texas will continue to provide support and assistance for our homeowners and businesses as they rebuild and recover from storm damage.”

With this approval, the SBA granted access to its Physical Disaster Loan program for homes and businesses, as well as its Economic Injury Disaster Loan program.
