The Governor has issued a disaster declaration for 18 counties impacted by recent severe weather and flooding that has caused widespread property damage and threatened loss of life. We understand that parts of your home or business may have been damaged or you may have limited access to water, food, and other necessities.

If your childcare operation has been impacted and you are not able to provide childcare as a result, please contact your local licensing office or State Wide Intake at 1-800-252-5400.

If you do not have a sufficient water supply to ensure the health and safety of children in your care, you should remain closed until it is safe to resume caring for children.

Thank you for your service to the children of Texas.
