The Red Cross to restart the application process on Thursday, September 21.

The American Red Cross Harvey financial assistance program relaunched on Thursday, September 21. Registration will remain open through October 10.

On September 21, the Red Cross plans to launch a single website where qualified households from 39 Texas counties that were severely impacted by Harvey can apply for $400. We expect the website to have sufficient capacity to handle all registrations; applications will not be accepted through any other website or phone number. The Red Cross is processing registrations for pending applicants whose registrations were not completed when the system became overloaded. For example, because of the system overload, some applicants did not receive reference codes or were unable to select payment methods. We are working to resolve those registrations within the next few days. Qualified applicants will receive a text or email with instructions for completing the process.

Severely impacted households that need immediate assistance can apply at
