Pharr city officials have authorized funds for residents affected by recent flooding.

Pharr Mayor Ambrosio Hernandez and the city commission have pledged $40,000 to Affordable Homes of South Texas, Inc., an organization distributing grants of up to $300 for flood victims.

The grants are to be used for quick fixes, such as tarps, wet-vacs, small tools and cleaning supplies until insurance or FEMA help arrives, according to a news release from the city.

To apply for the assistance, residents will need the following:

  • A completed application that can be submitted online
  • Identification or Driver’s License
  • Proof of income.
  • Printed photos of damage
  • An estimate of damages or materials to be purchased

For more information, visit or call 956-687-6263.

McAllen residents can also apply, as CBS 4 News previously reported.
