What is included in the Registry?


A collection of short surveys dedicated to health and housing issues resulting from Hurricane Harvey and other major storms.

Why should I take the Registry's survey?


Measuring who is being impacted and in what ways will help to:
  • serve and inform impacted communities
  • direct continuing recovery efforts
  • plan for the future.

Who should complete the Registry's survey?


Any adult in the impact zone of a major storm. Your answers are important to us whether you were impacted severely, lightly, or not at all.

If there is more than one adult per household, we ask that each adult complete the survey individually.

Turning disaster to resilience.
Your story matters.
