Hurricane Harvey Relief
Sen. Cruz continues to work with local, state, and federal officials to ensure Texans from Rockport to Beaumont have the resources they need to recover and rebuild from the devastating winds and floods of Hurricane Harvey.
A key component to recovery is the Cruz-Cornyn-Rubio tax relief bill, which provides significant tax relief for those who were directly affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. By providing additional tax deductions and waived penalties for withdrawals from tax-advantaged accounts, Texas storm survivors are to keep more of their money as they rebuild. There are also tax credits available for the hundreds of small businesses that kept paying their employees, even if those employees were unable to come to work or the business was shut down, during the storms. Additionally, by lifting the usual limits on charitable giving, this bill allows more people nationwide to help Texans impacted by Harvey.
Led by our Hurricane Harvey recovery working group, Sen. Cruz continues to work to ensure swift and effective service to Texans and Texas communities in need of federal assistance following the storm. If you need additional information or assistance during the recovery and rebuilding process, please do not hesitate to contact our office or utilize the federal and state resources listed here.
