Hurricane Irma

Rebuild Florida is a program of the Florida Department of Commerce (FloridaCommerce) created to help Florida’s long-term disaster recovery efforts. This includes long term recovery from Hurricane Irma. The state of Florida is committed to helping homeowners, small businesses and communities affected by this storm.

Rebuild Florida Housing Repair and Replacement Program for Irma-Impacted Homeowners
The Rebuild Florida Housing Repair and Replacement Program is helping eligible homeowners impacted by Hurricane Irma by repairing, rebuilding or replacing damaged homes across the hardest-hit communities. Because funding is limited, priority is given to low-income residents who are most vulnerable, including the elderly, those with disabilities and families with children under the age of 18, with later phases expanding to less vulnerable groups as funding allows.
