ABOUT US:


Harvey Home Connect is a common application and coordination system for eligible seekers of home repair services in the City of Houston and/or Harris County who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. Using the information provided on this form, we match these eligible seekers of home repair services to reputable, pre-vetted nonprofits (listed below) who can help.


Harvey Home Connect is funded by the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund and is professionally managed by SBP, a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that specializes in disaster resilience and recovery.

INSTRUCTIONS:


First, please fill out the eligibility pre-screen on the next page to see if you might be eligible for home repair services from our partner organizations.  


Then, if it looks like you're eligible, you will be asked to fill out the intake form, which takes about 30 minutes to complete.


In order to complete the intake form, you will need to upload digital copies of the following documents (clear, easy-to-read photos are ok).


For each adult household member:

    • Tax return (if filed in past two years)
    • 2 most recent pay stubs (if income is greater than $0)
    • 2 most recent checking account statements (if person has checking account)
    • 1 most recent savings account statement (if person has savings account)

For each home:

    • Current deed, statement of ownership, or affidavit proving ownership
    • Most recent mortgage statement (if home is mortgaged)
    • Property tax payment plan (if applicable; we’ll cross-reference all applications with HCAD)

If you do not have all of these documents on hand, you can begin the application and return to it to compete at a later date.


Our team has a commitment to transparency through this process. If you successfully submit the intake form, we will send you SMS and email updates on a weekly basis to provide you information about your intake status.


Harvey Home Connect's partner nonprofits are Avenue CDC, BakerRipley, BuildAid, Fifth Ward CRC, Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County, Houston Habitat for Humanity, Rebuilding Together Houston, SBP, Tejano Center for Community Concerns, and YWCA.
