$25M Available for Homeowners Impacted by Hurricane Idalia

Home and property owners in 18 Florida counties affected by Hurricane Idalia may now be eligible for state-backed funds to help with repairs and housing assistance. The Hurricane Housing Recovery Program has provided $25 million through the Florida Housing Finance Corp. for homeowners in counties designated as federal disaster areas due to the August 30 storm.

Eligible Counties

The funds have been distributed to the following eligible counties: Charlotte, Citrus, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Hernando, Hillsborough, Jefferson, Lafayette, Levy, Madison, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Sarasota, Suwannee, and Taylor.

Uses of Funds

The allocated funds can be used to demolish, repair, or replace housing, including manufactured homes.

However, individuals who have already received state or federal housing assistance are not eligible for these funds.
