Apply for Assistance
Lone Star College, in partnership with Lone Star College Foundation, is providing financial support to our full-time employees who have suffered losses due to Hurricane Harvey. This is not intended to replace insurance coverage or FEMA funds for which you may be eligible.
Please complete the form on the link below to request funding. This is a one-time allocation and priority will be given to those with documented home or auto damage. We cannot guarantee that all requests will be funded. We hope this helps to lift some of the burden as you recover.
Amount requested: Not to exceed $1,000 for employees and $500 for students. Please note that $1,000 would be for extraordinary circumstances. Most grants will be for less. The application period for Harvey assistance ended on Friday, September 15 at 5pm.
