On Thursday, the Texas Association of Realtors said it would give $1 million in disaster relief funding to help fund flood and debris recovery efforts.
The organization was part of the coalition that was responsible for the massive $15 billion relief package that Texas Gov.
Greg Abbott signed on Monday.
The group has already pledged to spend the money on disaster recovery efforts for the state’s most vulnerable residents.
The group, which includes some of the biggest real estate developers in the state, said it will use the money to help pay for disaster relief, including disaster relief grants for those affected by the Harvey storm.
It is not immediately clear how much the state will contribute to the project.
The Texas Association’s announcement comes as more than 2 million Texans have received federal disaster relief and another 7 million have been offered free or reduced-cost help from the federal government, according to a report by the U.S. Census Bureau.
The flood and storm disaster funds, which are distributed in increments, have been used for some $4 billion in the U,S.
The money has also been used to help victims of the Great Sandy disaster, which hit the Northeast and Midwest in 2012.
