Free assistance for plumbing repairs following winter freeze in February

The Victoria County Long-Term Recovery Group has been approved for a second grant that will help people at the intersection with sanitation issues.

VICTORIA COUNTY, Texas – It was a road to recovery after the February winter frost in the state and on the Crossroads.

It affected the lives of many.

A local organization was recently approved for a grant that will help provide free plumbing, boiler and home repair help to residents.

Rick Villa with the Victoria County Long-Term Recovery Group said there is an application process that people must go through to qualify.

Villa said there is currently a waiting list, but they are doing their best to help all those still recovering from the winter frost.

“It’s for everyone… we don’t do an income grant for this particular aid… this one for the winter storm, we’re just asking you to fill in the intake information,” Villa said. “We will also ask you for some documentation because these funders ask for documentation, photos, so be prepared to provide paperwork and photos.”

The group not only helps residents living in Victoria County through their grants, but also counts Lavaca, Jackson, Calhoun, Gonzales and Goliad.

“After winter storm Uri, [grant opportunity was told to us] for $110,000 to aid disaster recovery in this region,” Villa shared in an email. “I have written a grant proposal for homeowners/renters in the Golden Crescent area: the CDP Texas Winter Storms Recovery Fund will be used for personnel ($16,428), plumbing/tools ($10,000), water heaters ($10,000), plumbing contractor bills ($73,572).”

For more information please email Villa at or call 361-894-6264.

Villa also mentioned that VCLTRG has free wireless mini blinds available.

You can call or email the same contact details to request the free mini blinds.
