What Is the My Safe Florida Home Program?
It may be known as the Sunshine State, but Florida certainly has a long and stormy history. In fact, the Florida coast has been ravaged by more than twice as many hurricanes as any other state. While this has often had tragic results, it's also given us the knowledge and experience needed to protect ourselves. A variety of simple upgrades have proven effective at mitigating damage in even the strongest storms. My Safe Florida Home is a program offering government grants to make these home improvements more accessible to residents in hurricane-prone areas. In particular, this includes additions like:
- Impact-resistant windows and exterior doors
- Reinforced wall-to-roof connections
- Stronger roof coverings and attachments
How To Save Money While Strengthening Your Home
Through My Safe Florida Home, eligible residents can receive $2 in state grants for every $1 spent on qualifying home improvements. Participating in the program may also save money via lower home insurance premiums. Currently, the program only applies to site-built single-family homes located in one of Florida's designated wind-borne debris regions.
If your property fits that description, you can get started by requesting a free hurricane inspection. A licensed state inspector will assess your home and provide you with a list of recommended wind mitigation upgrades. You can then submit an application to obtain a grant for whichever improvements you choose to install.
