WHAT DOES IT COVER?

The intent of the program is to retrofit the entire envelope of the house; the roof and all the doors, windows, soffits, and vents.

Some common mitigation efforts include shutters, impact resistant windows, gable end bracing, hurricane straps, reroofing and more.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  1. If you meet the criteria, complete an application. DOWNLOAD APPLICATION HERE!
  2. A wind inspector will inspect your home to determine necessary mitigation measures.
  3. The application and inspection together will create a project file for the selection process.
  4. If selected, construction will begin.
  5. After construction, a post-inspection will be done to ensure work is completed to the appropiate specifications.
  6. A 5-year vanishing lien will be placed on the house to discourage fast resale/flipping.
