Important Flood Recovery Information
Information provided by the City of Garland.
Garland residents, businesses and property owners impacted by recent floods may be eligible for federal and state disaster assistance, pending action by various government agencies.
In the meantime, Garland officials are asking all property owners with damage to their house or business structure to call in to register their flood damage with the City. This information will enable the City to provide additional information about storm recovery as it becomes available.
Garland property owners impacted by recent floods should call the City of Garland at 972-205-2000 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The call takers will collect contact information and inquire about whether property owners have homeowner, commercial and flood insurance.
Although a federal declaration for the Garland area is not yet official, property owners are urged to register with FEMA for individual assistance by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362).
As a public service, VisionLink, ConnectFirst, United Way of Abilene, the Information Technology Disaster Resource Center (ITDRC) and Crisis Cleanup are sponsoring a free, multi-agency debris removal and muckout hotline for survivors of the recent severe weather in Texas. Effective immediately through July 4, residents of Texas requiring assistance may call 1-800-451-1954 to request help with cleanup, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. This information will be made available to responding voluntary agencies throughout Texas and Oklahoma. Due to the extensive need, calling does not guarantee service. The hotline will not handle requests for any other types of service.
The City of Garland will provide updates regarding flood recovery and assistance as they become available. Monitor the City's website and social media channels for updates. Also, register for CodeRED telephone notifications and Garland Enews announcements.All News
