​​​​​​Construction crew aiding in the cleanup after HarveyHOUSTON AREA – While rescue efforts are still underway in the Houston region in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, state and federal officials are already wrestling with the formidable task of cleaning up and rebuilding infrastructure and homes once the unprecedented amount of floodwaters recede.​

Strategic Partnerships—that tracks contract opportunities for vendors of all types around the state—has published a list of guidelines for contractors that want to be part of the cleanup and construction efforts down the road.​

Vendors should also know that the Federal Emergency Management Agency continually stockpiles essential emergency goods, known as initial response resources, long before disasters occur so resources can move quickly.

Those emergency items include bottled water, food, cots, tarps, blue roofing sheeting and blankets. 

Estimates of the destruction wrought by the hurricane are projected to be somewhere in the range of $160 billion, with Texas accounting for most of that total.​
