Mobile disaster recovery centers from FEMA to be hosted by Alamo and Progreso
Disaster survivors are encouraged to register for assistance before visiting the DRCs by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or TTY 1-800-462-7585 for the hearing or speech impaired.
The Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced the opening of mobile Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs). The mobile DRCs will open in Alamo on Thursday, Sept. 16, and in Progreso on Friday, Sept. 17, for those affected by Hurricane Alex and subsequent flooding.
The mobile DRC in Alamo will open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, Sept. 16-18, and will be located at:
Hidalgo County Pct. 2 Multipurpose Center
The mobile DRC in Progreso will be open from noon to 6 p.m., Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 17-18, and will be located at:
Progreso Family Community Center
Spanish speakers will be on hand in both mobile DRCs to provide assistance to survivors.
Even though FEMA and the state encourage DRC visits, doing so is not required to be considered for assistance.
Representatives of the state, federal and voluntary agencies, as well as customer service representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), will be available at the center to answer questions and provide disaster loan information to homeowners, renters and businesses of all sizes. Written materials about various assistance programs are also available to individuals and business owners. No cash, checks, debit cards or vouchers are distributed at DRCs. Centers are for the dissemination of information to assist in recovery.
