INDIVIDUAL ASSISTANCE FROM TDEM
Once you go to the website click on the tab labeled “Click Here for Texas Individual Assistance Reporting Tool (TIART)”. The form is easy to fill out and is available in both Spanish or English. You are not required on the form to give any estimate on cost of repair. It does asks for contact information, location of building, and type of damage. If you have pictures they are requested on the form. Please be sure to click on the “Submit” button on the bottom of the form when you are finished.
We need any one who has experienced loss to fill out this form, even if you have insurance that will cover your damages. The more response that the State gets on the damages the better our chances on getting assistance.
