for Hurricane Ian

WHO IS ELIGIBLE

The program focuses on serving households that meet the following criteria:

1

You owned and occupied your property at the time of Hurricane Ian, and you still own the property.

2

Your household is income-qualified.

“Income-qualified” means that your household income meets HUD’s low-and-moderate income requirements. For details contact the program at 800-915-6803

Households earning more than the income limits are not prohibited from applying as noted above and will be served after households that are more vulnerable and at-risk have been prioritized.
