FEMA recovery center in Friendswood closes Friday


The State of Texas-Federal Disaster Recovery Center in Friendswood will close at 6 p.m. Friday after more than five months of operation in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

“Having a FEMA Disaster Recovery Center in Friendswood has been a great help to residents of Friendswood and nearby cities,” Friendswood Mayor Kevin Holland said in a news release. “It has allowed residents affected by Hurricane Harvey to get face-to-face information from a wide range of Federal and State agencies, all under one roof.”

The center opened Sept. 29 and helped storm victims learn about and apply for assistance through federal programs.

After Friday, the nearest open Disaster Relief Center is at the School District Building-Pearland Historical Society, 2341 N. Galveston Ave., in Pearland, according to FEMA. The agency also said that residents seeking updates can log into their accounts at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 for assistance.
