The My Safe Florida Home program, provides homeowners with free inspections and grants up to $10,000 to make storm safety related improvements.
The $150 million dollar program is intended to allow homeowners to help harden their homes against future storms. The Florida Legislature passed the bill in May, but as of today, residents are still unable to apply.
Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis who oversees the program is looking to remedy that and have the program expedited.
“The CFO directed the project be expedited, so the targeted deployment date is the end of October,” said spokesperson Devin Galetta.
