Red Cross Assistance Information

Dear Parents, HERE is the latest update on the American Red Cross Cash Assistance Program. The Red Cross restarted the application process last Thursday, September 21. Registration will remain open through October 10. The Red Cross launched a single website at www.redcross.org, where qualified households from 39 Texas counties that were severely impacted by Harvey can apply for $400. They expect the website to have sufficient capacity to handle all registrations. Applications will not be accepted through any other website or phone number. The Red Cross is processing registrations for pending applicants whose registrations were not completed when the system became overloaded. For example, because of the system overload, some applicants did not receive reference codes or were unable to select payment methods. They have been working to resolve the system issues. Qualified applicants will receive a text or email with instructions for completing the process. Have a blessed afternoon!
