Hurricane Harvey Resource Guide

The University of Houston MD Anderson Library is providing a guide to help navigate through the resources available in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and its devastating aftermath. The guide includes the most trustworthy and reliable resources available at this time, and encourages users to exercise caution while Googling for recovery-related resources, as the information is not always credible and can link to bogus charities, repair companies and other predatory sources.

Please visit http://guides.lib.uh.edu/harvey to access the full guide.

For engineering students who were adversely impacted by the hurricane, a Cougar Emergency Fund was created to provide up to $2,500 of relief funding per student. Please visit http://www.uh.edu/about/offices/enrollment-services/communications-marketing/2017-harvey-fra-final for more information and to apply.

Finally, a UH Cougar Emergency Fund has been established to provide comfort and ease for students who find themselves with hardships as a result of the storm. If you are interested in donating to the campus-wide Harvey Relief fund, please visit https://giving.uh.edu/gift/?allocation=HC55074HA45.
