More $$ for Houston: Harris Co. Approves Additional $1200 Relief Check

That $1200 stimulus check may have gone fast, but Harris County approved a bill to provide $1200 to Houston families of one to four yesterday. If you have five or more residents in your home, you could receive $1500.

The Houston County Commissioner's Court approved a $30 million COVID-19 relief fund, which would be used to help struggling families and targeting areas where an average of residents make less than 60% the Area Median Income. This would also be distributed to victims of domestic violence, youth aged out of foster care and the homeless.

It will be managed by Greater Houston Community Foundation.

If you receive the City of Houston funding already, you will not be eligible.

So how do I get it?

That information has not been released yet, but check back as we'll update once an announcement is made.
