Texas: FEMA sends $5.8 million to Humble Independent School District for Hurricane Harvey relief

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded more than $5.8 million to the Humble Independent School District for emergency protective measures taken before, during and following Hurricane Harvey.

The district secured the campus facilities, opened an Emergency Operations Center, placed barricades, directed traffic and pumped flood water from the facilities.

The FEMA grant covers 100 percent of the project’s costs because the district completed their work within 30 days of the disaster declaration period.
