The Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is advising homeowners seeking a buyout for their property due to flooding to begin the application process now. The application period will be from Oct. 11, 2019 until Jan. 31, 2020.
Meghan Ballard, public information officer for the Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, says the buyout program is for homeowners whose properties were flooded in the 2016 floods on Tax Day and Memorial Day, and Hurricane Harvey. The program is open to any Montgomery County homeowner who was affected by these storms.
Funding for the buyout program comes from two Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery Program grants – $8.919 million in 2016 and $12.896 million in 2017 – and a Flood Mitigation Assistance Grant in 2016 for $9.073 million.
