Texas to receive wildfire recovery funds

Posted on March 24th, 2013 No Comments

Texas will receive a National Emergency Grant totaling more than $1.2 million for the recovery of the counties that were affected by the 2011 wildfires, the U.S. Department of Labor said on Monday, March 11.

A federal grant amounting to $406,000 will be given to Texas counties to fund temporary jobs for continued work on recovering after the fires that caused extensive damage. At least 32 Texas counties were previously declared by Federal Emergency Management Agency as eligible for public assistance.

Counties eligible for the recovery grant are the following: Anderson, Bastrop, Bosque, Briscoe, Cass, Cherokee, Clay, Colorado, Coryell, Edwards, Gregg, Hall, Harrison, Henderson, Hill, Houston, Howard, Kimble, Leon, Marion, Menard, Montague, Morris, Navarro, Nolan, Panola, Rusk, Smith, Sutton, Upshur, Walker, and Wise.

Despite this available financial assistance, many people affected by the wildfires are suffering through other financial problems as a result of reticent insurance companies. To get assistance fighting these negligent parties, call the legal team of Williams Kherkher at 800-639-8460 today.
