Williamson County Under Federal Texas Severe Winter Storms Disaster Declaration

Williamson County is one of 77 Texas counties that fall under the federal Texas Severe Winter Storms disaster declaration. County Judge Bill Gravell has terminated our local disaster declaration as we are now covered under the federal declaration. Residents who sustained damage from snow and ice during the winter storms may apply for federal assistance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). If you have insurance, contact your insurance company first, and then FEMA. Your insurance claim information is needed to determine eligibility for federal assistance. Apply online at DisasterAssistance.gov or call 800-621-3362 or TTY 800-462-7585. The deadline to apply for FEMA assistance has been extended to May 20. A copy of the local terminated disaster declaration can be found here.
