Hays County is a subrecipient of the Texas General Land Office (GLO) and as such, administers the 2015 Flood Recovery Program in compliance with GLO program design. Hays County utilizes the state-approved application and supporting documentation to qualify Hays County Residents for assistance. The links below outline required paperwork in the application process. All applicants must complete an application including the submission of supporting documentation in order to qualify for a full eligibility review. 

  • Homeowner Application - core application document that must be completed and signed by all interested applicants in order to be reviewed for eligibility.

  • Income Verification Adjusted Gross Income calculation sheet - when an IRS tax return form 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ cannot be obtained for an applicant household as verification of 2017 annual income, household income will be calculated utilizing the AGI calculation sheet supported by the appropriate affidavit(s) and extensive income paperwork.
  • Affidavit of Ownership - in the absence of a valid deed of trust, warranty deed, or Statement of Ownership and Location (SOL), the applicant must certify by notarized affidavit that they have undisputed ownership of the damaged property.

  • Duplication of Benefits Calculation Form -  each applicant must provide documentation of prior assistance including insurance award letter(s), FEMA award letter(s), Small Business Administration (SBA) loan award, or other assistance received for the purpose of home repairs due to 2015 flood damage, and must provide receipts for all resulting repairs.
