Winter Storm Uri

Needs Assessment Survey

If your household was impacted by the winter storm, we encourage you to complete the Needs Assessment Survey below.

The purpose of the survey is to understand the needs of our communities so that we can better serve you and advocate for more resources - it is not an application for assistance. As a survey participant, you will receive information on new resources as they become available. Your personal information won’t be shared with government entities.
