Mayor's Disaster Recovery Fund Fund
About This Fund
In 2017, Joe McComb established the Mayor’s Hurricane Harvey Fund in order to accept donations and disburse funds for the recovery following Hurricane Harvey. This fund has recently been renamed Mayor’s Disaster Recovery Fund. focused on assistance to area nonprofits working to meet the demands for critical services during the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic.
The guiding principle of the Mayor’s Disaster Recovery Fund is to assess need in terms of demands for services and the cash on hand of nonprofits focused on food and housing along with the potential to receive state or federal monies, and the overall financial condition of the entity. Should headway be made in these areas through the funding donated, then it is hoped to have sufficient donations to allow the fund to expand into supporting childcare and medical services.
