Hurricane Proofing For Free In Broward County

FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami.com) – Even though hurricane season has been relatively quiet across South Florida; it’s still crucial to make sure your home can stand up to the power of a storm.

But for some families, this is an expense that can’t be met in the brutal economic conditions for most families.

So, the U.S. government has stepped in and for a lucky few, the government will pay to get their homes better prepared to face a hurricane.

According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Broward and Palm Beach Counties have millions to give out to homeowners who have limited funds in an effort to better prepare them for a storm.

To qualify for the grants in Broward County, a homeowner with a household of four must have a maximum income of $60,250 per year, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

Interested home owners can call 954-581-9899 or 954-431-7866 to find out more about the program.

    FYI… I called and this program cannot be used for hurricane shutters on condos. I guess condo owners aren’t susceptible to hurricanes.
