Through a well-organized network of professional educators and more than 4,000 trained volunteers, the Prairie View A&M University Cooperative Extension Program delivers practical research-based knowledge to small farm producers, families, aspiring entrepreneurs and youth in 35 Texas counties. We work with people who need us the most. Many of them have limited personal or family assets, limited opportunities or they come from communities that have limited resources.
Economists are calling Hurricane Harvey the costliest storm in U.S. history with damages ranging from $180-$190 billion. Although, we are unsure on the total economic impact of the storm across Texas counties, we do know that many of our residents are finding ways to rebuild their lives, homes and community.
In the rebuilding process, which could take months or maybe years to recovery, PVAMU Cooperative Extension Program Community Economic Development unit compiled a comprehensive resource list of nonprofits that have either received funding from Texas Rebuild, the State of Texas, or individual counties.
This information was then mapped in order to allow quick access for hurricane victims, so that they can locate, identify and contact the many resources Texas has received in funding for hurricane victims.
There are over 75 non-profit organizations that have received some type of funding to help displaced individuals rebuild. To learn more information you may contact Community and Economic Development offices at (936) 261-5148.
