Funds Donated to the Central Texas Food Bank to Assist in Disaster Recovery

Over the past several months, Econometrica, Inc., has raised funds for the Central Texas Food Bank to help with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Hurricane Harvey deeply affected our friends in Texas, and we are proud to have raised $2,609.40.

Econometrica has numerous clients (past and present) and business associates throughout Texas, including along the coast and in Houston. Deeply saddened to witness the devastation from Hurricane Harvey, we set up a fundraising page to support the Central Texas Food Bank, which will use these funds to purchase disaster relief boxes and quickly distribute them to the individuals and families who need them most. The boxes are filled with necessary goods that are easy for those impacted by the storm to use.

Econometrica has long focused on projects that include disaster recovery, public health initiatives, public and affordable housing, and nutrition assistance/food security. We understand the basic, daily needs of people, especially following a disaster. We have supported implementation of the Katrina Disaster Housing Assistance Program and the follow-on Disaster Voucher Program—both programs that addressed the urgent housing needs of flood victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Following extensive flooding and landslides in Colorado in September 2013, we were contracted to provide onsite subject matter expertise in a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Joint Field Office to inform State, regional, and local economic recovery planning.
