Texas Department of Housing & Community Affairs - Building Homes and Strengthening Communities

Texas Hurricane Conference Set for May 17-19

One way in which TDHCA fulfills its mission is in its response to natural disasters. In the event of a hurricane, tornado, flood, or other disaster, the Governor may request assistance from TDHCA's HOME program for the repair or replacement of damaged homes owned and lived in by low income Texans.

The Department encourages all local elected officials and emergency responders to attend the 2005 Texas Hurricane Conference, sponsored by the Governor's Division of Emergency Management (DEM). The conference will be held in Beaumont May 17-19 at the Ford Park Convention Center, and it is an excellent opportunity to share information with and improve coordination among Texas communities when responding in the aftermath of a hurricane. Contact DEM at (512) 424-2138 for more information about this important conference.
