​​​WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Texas General Land Office (GLO) launched a public awareness campaign to inform homeowners affected by Hurricane Harvey that help is available to avoid foreclosure and to finance repairs. 

Over one-quarter of home loans in Texas are insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), an agency within HUD, which offers a range of payment and other relief options for borrowers living in Presidentially Declared Major Disaster Areas (PDMDAs). 

Borrowers who are having trouble making mortgage payments should contact their servicers to discuss available resources. In addition, HUD-approved housing counselors can assist in connecting impacted homeowners with the right options for relief. HUD also offers help for borrowers and loan servicers through its FHA Resource Center, (800) CALL-FHA.

According to Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, Hurricane Harvey affected nearly 50,000 square miles of Texas and damaged or destroyed over a million homes.
