Mercedes residents can still apply for disaster relief


Residents dealing with the aftermath of the recent flooding in Rio Grande Valley, can still access the disaster relief grant.

The Hidalgo County Community Service Agency is continuing working on helping residents get back on their feet.

According to Clara Chapa with the HCCSA, a $915,000 grant will be distributed to approved applicants who can provide proof of damage from the severe rainstorms and floods. 

The HCCSA says the availability for the grant is limited, and they encourage those who live in  Hidalgo County Precinct 1 – especially Mercedes – to apply before the funds are gone.

Residents wanting to apply can do so in person at the Mercedes Dome Safe Center, located at 1202 N. Vermont in Mercedes.
