President Biden Declares a Major Disaster in Texas


What Happened:

  • On Saturday, the White House announced that President Biden had declared a major disaster in Texas and asked federal agencies to identify additional aid for the state.

  • Texas has been particularly hard hit by recent winter storms which left millions without power in sub-zero temperatures, in many cases with no potable water and water infiltration in their homes.

  • The declaration allows the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide additional resources, including grants for temporary housing and repairs and low-cost loans to cover uninsured properties.

  • President Biden plans to visit Texas next week but said he did not wish to visit now and create an additional burden for the state.
