City of Temple Establishes Temple Recovery Taskforce

TEMPLE, TX (May 23, 2024) - The City of Temple has established the Temple Recovery Taskforce to connect residents affected by the storm with available resources. 

The taskforce connects victims of disasters with reputable relief agencies to provide services free of charge, such as debris removal, home repair, and water damage repair. It does not provide resources that require a licensed skilled tradesman, such as plumbing or electrical work. Please remember to check references and choose your contractor wisely when planning for home repairs.

The City will partner with local organizations through a website called Crisis Cleanup. Crisis Cleanup is an organization that has provided a free website that helps coordinate relief efforts provided by local government, non-profit, and faith-based recovery taskforce members.

Requests for assistance can be submitted through Crisis Cleanup’s hotline at 512.201.4814.

These services are not provided by the City of Temple. The city is only coordinating with local organizations who provide services. There is no guarantee that a request for assistance will be fulfilled. 

Residents and businesses may also be eligible to receive a Federal Disaster Loan through the United States Small Business Association. For additional information on SBA and to apply, visit crisiscleanup.org/disasters

Additional resources are available through the Federal Emergency Management Association. FEMA can aid with items not covered by insurance for homeowners and renters.

If you are not affiliated with participating partner organizations individuals who wish to volunteer are encouraged to call 254.298.5970.

If you would like to donate, the United Way of Central Texas in Temple is accepting monetary donations on behalf of the city.
