Disaster Recovery Support Survey

With freezing temperatures and widespread power outages last week across all 254 counties in Texas, museums across the state have sustained damage to their sites and/or collections. Federal funding may be available to support recovery efforts.

Please take a few minutes to complete this survey, which will help the Texas Historical Commission Museum Services Program and our state and federal partners assess both the impact and the support needed for recovery. This survey will be open through Friday, February 26.
