New Harvey Intake Center opens

Residents of Baytown and East Harris County looking for assistance recovering from Hurricane Harvey have a new location where they can receive help applying to the Project Recovery-Harvey program, Harris County officials have announced.

The new location, at 729 Sharon Lane in Baytown, opened its doors to the public on Monday, June 3, replacing an interim office located along Market Street. The Sharon Lane office will operate Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. and on Saturdays by appointment only from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. To schedule a appointment, call 832-927-4961.

The only other area center is at 3315 Burke Road in Pasadena.

With the addition of the Baytown center, Project Recovery-Harvey now has five permanent locations to assist Harvey-affected homeowners who live in Harris County, but outside the Houston City Limits, get access to federal money designated to help repair flood-damaged homes, reconstruct homes deemed unlivable or vulnerable to future flooding, or for reimbursement of repairs already made.

Prior to visiting an Intake Center, residents are encouraged to fill out a pre-application at harrisrecovery.org.  A list of the five Intake Centers, and their locations, is included in this release. Project Recovery-Harvey will also continue to operate a part-time mobile intake location in Sheldon on Tuesdays and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
