Assistance in the Wake of the Winter Storm


Brazos County, TX – Disaster assistance may be available to Brazos County residents adversely affected by last week’s winter storm. Residents who suffered snow and ice damage can apply for federal funds at, or by calling 1-800-621-3362. 


Anyone with insurance is asked to first contact their insurance company and then FEMA, as insurance claim information is needed in determining eligibility for federal assistance.  Those without insurance can go directly to to begin the process of filing an application.  (FEMA is unable to reimburse lost food due to power outages, but volunteer organizations may be able to help if food assistance is needed.  Call 211 for more.)  FEMA has also partnered with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to offer low-interest disaster loans.  More information is available at  


After submitting an application, FEMA will notify each person either via tradition mail service or email.


To get a better picture of the damage in each county, the State of Texas is asking residents to take part in a survey, either by going to or using the QR Code:
