Panhandle Wildfire Relief

We encourage the public to call 2-1-1, visit, and monitor local media outlets for the identification of resources.

Texans can report damage to homes, businesses, and agricultural property using the Individual State of Texas Assessment Tool (iSTAT). The iSTAT survey can be filled out in English and Spanish online at and click on “Ongoing Wildfire Incidents.”

Texans are encouraged to follow directions from officials, limit activities that may cause sparks or flames, and keep emergency supplies easily accessible. Texans can visit for wildfire tips, for safety information, and to report wildfire damage.

Disaster Resources

FSA: Farm Service Agency

The Farm Service Agency (FSA) should serve as the primary point of contact for all farmers and ranchers who may be impacted by the disaster. Below is a fact sheet with basic information on many of the Farm Service Agency programs producers should consider, depending on the specifics of their circumstances. We encourage producers to look through USDA’s Disaster Assistance Discovery Tool at which can help producers identify the type of assistance they are looking for.

NRCS: Natural Resources Conservation Service

The Natural Resources Conservation Service can provide disaster assistance to farmers, ranchers, and communities through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), Technical Assistance, and the Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP) Program.

Rural Development

While the primary contact for rural communities impacted by a disaster should be FEMA, Rural Development can provide support to homeowners, businesses, and communities to aid in recovery and rebuilding. RD can be helpful in providing a long-term response to disasters—through repair to homes, essential community facilities, and rural water systems.
