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. To apply for assistance, or to update information to include a request for specialized assistance, contact FEMA by:

If you need a reasonable accommodation or assistance filling out your FEMA application, please call 833-283-7448 or TTY 800-462-7585. Those who use a relay service such as a videophone, InnoCaption or CapTel should alert FEMA as to the specific number assigned to that service. The deadline for assistance has been extended to May 20.
