The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced earlier this year that it will be sending funding to Bastrop to help the city rebuild homes lost last summer’s devastating wildfires.
The $20 million of federal funding will build an estimated 150 homes. The Texas General Land Office is coming up with a plan to determine eligibility for these government-funded homes. Many people who have not been eligible for help from FEMA and other organizations are hopeful that this will be their lucky break.
A spokesperson for the Texas General Land Office says that the homes will go to the most needy uninsured and under-insured. Local groups estimate that there are still several hundred families that continue to not have a home, nearly eight months after the fires.
