Peace of Mind and Savings: My Safe Florida Home Program for Florida Residents

Living in Florida is a dream come true for many – sunshine, beaches, and endless summer vibes. But, hurricane season can bring a different kind of reality. Protecting your home from these powerful storms is crucial, but the cost of hurricane-resistant upgrades can feel overwhelming.

Here's some good news, Florida homeowners! The state offers a fantastic program called My Safe Florida Home.  This program is designed to help low- and moderate-income residents like you make their homes stronger and safer against hurricanes, all at an affordable price!

Here's what makes My Safe Florida Home so easy:

  • Free Inspections:  Qualified inspectors will visit your home for free to assess its wind resistance.  They'll identify areas that could benefit from upgrades and suggest improvements.

  • Matching Grants:  If you qualify, the program can provide you with a matching grant to cover up to $10,000 for eligible wind mitigation improvements!  This means the program pays for half the cost, and you only pay the other half.

  • Simple Application Process:  The application process is designed to be easy and user-friendly. You can find all the information and forms online at the program's website:

Benefits of Participating in My Safe Florida Home:

  • Increased Safety:  By making your home stronger, you're protecting yourself, your family, and your belongings from the damaging effects of hurricanes.  Stronger homes are less likely to suffer roof damage, window breakage, or structural collapse during a storm.

  • Reduced Insurance Costs:  Many insurance companies offer discounts on homeowner's insurance for homes that have undergone wind mitigation improvements.  These savings can add up quickly and help offset the cost of any upgrades you make.

  • Peace of Mind:  Knowing your home is more resilient to hurricanes can bring immense peace of mind. You can face the next storm season with confidence, knowing you've taken steps to safeguard your home and family.
