Good news! The deadline to register for assistance from Rebuild Florida to repair, rebuild or replace a damaged home is extended to March 29, 2019.
Registration is the first step in the process and it can be completed in 15-30 minutes.
Rebuild Florida is a program of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), created to help Florida recover from the devastating impacts of Hurricane Irma. Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida on September 10, 2017, causing destruction and damage to thousands of homes in its path. The first phase of Rebuild Florida is the Housing Repair and Replacement Program, which will assist families to rebuild their homes that were damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Irma. The state of Florida is committed to helping homeowners affected by the storm by rebuilding or replacing damaged homes.
Rebuild Florida is a partnership of DEO and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which approved funding to local communities for Florida’s long-term recovery efforts after the 2017 hurricane season. Rebuild Florida will repair and rebuild damaged homes across the hardest-hit communities of our state, with priority funding for low-income families who are most vulnerable, including the elderly, those with disabilities and families with children under age 18.
If you believe you may be eligible for assistance, please visit RebuildFlorida.gov to register or call Rebuild Florida at 844-833-1010.
