City officials have been in communication with FEMA in regard to potential buyout or mitigation programs to assist those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
At this time, there have been no assurances that a buyout program will be offered. The City of Friendswood encourages everyone who sustained flood waters in their home to protect their property by taking measures to remove wet carpet, sheetrock, insulation, and dry out their homes.
Failure to do so could result in further damage to the property, making it uninhabitable.
As the City receives messages concerning this topic from FEMA or other federal officials, they will be passed along to City of Friendswood residents.
