According to the City of Dallas, eligible participants must be homeowners within the City of Dallas, have household incomes at or below 80% of the area median income, and have experienced damage to their primary residence caused by the last week's severe storms which risks causing harm to the life, health, or safety of the occupants.
Applications will be accepted starting on Thursday, Feb. 25, the City of Dallas said.
