Deadline to Register: Dec. 23

Rebuild Florida is a federally funded program that is being implemented by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. In this first phase, $50 million is earmarked for Monroe County homeowners to rebuild, repair and elevate their homes due to severe damage or destruction caused by Hurricane Irma.

To date, 913 households have registered for the assistance. 

So far in the review process, 316 have met the priority applicant threshold based on income and have been issued applications to move forward in the process.

Do not miss the deadline of December 23 to apply for this assistance. It is grant funding and not a loan that needs to be paid back. 

This program is for homeowners who meet low and moderate income levels or for homeowners who rent to people who meet affordable/workforce income levels. The most vulnerable populations will be prioritized.  This chart shows the maximum income allowed to be eligible, based on the number of people in the household.
