Floridians to Get Hurricane Mitigation Money

By  | 

(AP) - Floridians who are taking part in the state's hurricane mitigation program will receive the money the state promised.

The My Safe Florida Home program was created last year to help residents strengthen their homes against hurricanes.

For those homeowners who qualified for the program, the state was to match up to five thousand dollars for approved work, but letters sent out in recent weeks indicated the maximum match would be less than the $5,000 promised.

The Department of Financial Services says there was some confusion in the original letter and that the amount of matching money the state will provide those participating in the program has not changed.
