Rebuild Florida launched in September 2018 to Help Homeowners Recover From Hurricane Irma Rebuild Florida is a program of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. It was created to help families rebuild homes damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Irma. The state of Florida is committed to helping homeowners affected by Hurricane Irma rebuild or replace their damaged homes. Rebuild Florida will repair and rebuild damaged homes across the hardest-hit communities of our state, in 50 of 67 counties, with priority funding for those low-income residents who are most vulnerable, including the elderly, those with disabilities and families with children aged five and younger. Rebuild Florida received over $3 million to cover Hurricane Irma damage for nearly the entire peninsula of Florida and homeowners of 50 of the 67 Florida counties were eligible to register. If you believe you may be eligible for assistance, please visit RebuildFlorida.gov to register or call Rebuild Florida at 844-833-1010. You can also go to a Rebuild Florida Center to receive help with registration. If you have a Disaster Case Manager through the Long-Term Recovery Coalition, your DCM will help you through the process. Additional Information on the Disaster Resources Tab of this site.
