Pharr, Texas – The City of Pharr and the Texas General Land Office’s (GLO) Homeowner Assistance and Reimbursement Program (HARP) have partnered to host an informational presentation for Pharr residents who may be eligible to apply for assistance. The program was set up to help local residents impacted by the 2018-2019 flooding from storms that affected the Rio Grande Valley.

The informational presentation will take place TODAY, Thursday, June 30, 2022 at the Pharr Development and Research Center (850 W. Dicker Rd) in Pharr from 6 pm to 7 pm. All Pharr homeowners are invited to attend the presentation to learn more about how HARP may be able to help them.

“The GLO is seeking applications from homeowners for assistance rebuilding homes and reimbursement of repairs,” said Pharr Mayor Ambrosio Hernandez, M.D. “If your home was damaged by the 2018-2019 flood disasters, you are potentially eligible for assistance,” he continued. “As your Mayor for the City of Pharr, I encourage you to join us for this informational presentation and learn more about the program to see if you or your family may qualify,” Hernandez added.
