14 Pews Rounds Up Texas Commission on the Arts' Harvey Emergency Resources List

14 Pews Rounds Up Texas Commission on the Arts' Harvey Emergency Resources List

14 Pews has been gathering useful resource information from the Texas Commission on the Arts that might be helpful for its community, following the devastation created by Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath.

14 Pews wrote in a statement: "We hope that you all are safe and comfortable and please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about resources or just want to use our showers and electricity. We have been extremely fortunate so far and have not gotten flooded, just a little roof damage and a water leak - which is nothing compared to so many good people. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who have experienced hardship from this storm - big hugs and let's continue loving and helping one another."


Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) is concerned about the arts organizations and artists impacted by Hurricane Harvey. We are collecting information about resources that may be helpful on this webpage and welcome any additions.


Talk to your insurance company and sign up for federal assistance with FEMA. Most funders will want documentation that their funding assistance is not already covered by your insurance or FEMA. So even if your insurance does not provide coverage, having documentation of that is helpful.
