tonorado1.jpg

The Florida Housing Finance Corporation notified Escambia County today of approval of $2,058,028 in State Housing Initiatives Partnership, or SHIP, disaster funds for the two EF-3 tornados that struck Escambia County in February. Funds will be appropriated to assist with owner occupied housing rehabilitation, replacement, and disaster mitigation as outlined in the county’s Local Housing Assistance Plan.

Once available, funding may only be utilized for households directly impacted by one of the two storms and income restrictions will apply, see chart below. Household members seeking repair assistance will be required to provide proof of homestead exemption, income, assets, mortgage (if present), and insurance (if present) to certify eligibility.

For more information on disaster-related owner occupant housing repair or home replacement assistance:
