For those homeowners who are still dealing with damage from Hurricane Irma, the letter below should provide some helpful information on how you can apply to get assistance from a Florida program.
Many of you are aware of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity's DEO new program, Rebuild Florida, which launched today. For those of you who are not, Rebuild Florida is a $1.4 billion disaster recovery program for Hurricane Irma that will allow DEO and our partners the opportunity to provide critical assistance in many impacted communities across the state.
Rebuild Florida will repair and rebuild homes for low-income families, construct additional affordable housing units, assist businesses in disaster recovery and update local infrastructure to better withstand future storms. DEO and our many partners have been working diligently toward this goal for the past 12 months, since Hurricane Irma hit Florida last September. We are excited to announce the launch today, along with the new website RebuildFlorida.gov.
Please click here to see the press release from DEO.
If you are interested in applying for the Rebuild Florida program please call our Rebuild Florida Center number 844-833-1010, visit one of the Rebuild Florida Centers opening in your area or visit our website RebuildFlorida.gov.
Thank you so much for your partnership! We look forward to working with you to Rebuild Florida!
