    Governor Ron DeSantis Announces Support for Ian-Impacted Homeowners Insurance Deductibles

    Funding will Close the Financial Gap to Recovery for Families, Seniors

    FORT MYERS, Fla. – Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced that Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) is awarding $5 million to local housing partners to help Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian pay their home insurance deductibles in the six hardest hit counties. Funding assistance is available to individuals, families, and seniors living in Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Hardee, Lee, and Sarasota counties who apply and qualify through Florida Housing’s local housing partners. Homeowners are encouraged to contact their local SHIP office directly for more information: Local Government Information (floridahousing.org).

    As the state’s housing finance agency, Florida Housing annually receives funding from the Legislature for the State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) program, of which $5 million is set aside to be used in the event of a natural disaster. This year, the disaster funds have been allocated to assist Floridians who are low to moderate income, live in one of the six counties hardest hit by Hurricane Ian and cannot afford to pay their insurance deductibles.

    “Following the impacts of Hurricane Ian, it was really important to us to make sure people were able to get back into their homes and rebuild as quickly as possible – today’s announcement will help do just that,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “We know a lot of homeowners had coverage for the storm, however insurance deductibles are expensive and often a gap not covered by other support. These funds will immediately help families and seniors with limited means get closer to recovery."

    “We know there are many hardworking families and senior citizens on a fixed income that live in the areas impacted by Hurricane Ian,” said Trey Price, Executive Director of Florida Housing Finance Corporation. “Hurricane deductibles are larger than typical deductibles for home damages, and many people impacted aren’t prepared to put up tens of thousands of dollars to begin the work of rebuilding their homes. By providing the necessary financial assistance to help these families pay their insurance deductibles we hope this will ease some of the burden that comes after a major storm and allow the focus to remain on recovery. We’re grateful for the leadership from Governor DeSantis and the state Legislature as we all work together to continue providing Southwest Florida with the support needed to help their communities rebuild.”

    “Just a little more than a week ago, Governor DeSantis and I sat with business owners in Lee County, and we consistently heard the very real, urgent challenges that residents need help with to recover. Insurance deductibles were definitely one of the consistent points raised,” said Department of Economic Opportunity Secretary Dane Eagle. “Today, with the Governor’s leadership, we’re again turning the feedback of Southwest Florida residents into action, and we look forward to meeting with Florida Housing’s local partners to spread the word and further identify ways to support housing needs.”

    Florida Housing is also working to compile information on disaster relief resources. The following are possible resources for families affected by Hurricane Ian:

    • Individuals that have been displaced from their homes are encouraged to visit www.FloridaHousingSearch.org. This free, statewide search platform is constantly being updated to ensure all listings are accurate and can help quickly locate an affordable rental property. If you do not have Internet access, you may also call the following toll-free number for assistance in conducting a search: 1-877-428-8844.

    • If your home sustained damage as a result of the storm, your local State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) program office may have recovery assistance available to help with temporary relocation, rental assistance, debris removal and/or home repairs. Please contact your local SHIP office directly for more information: Local Government Information (floridahousing.org)

    • Florida residents can apply for federal assistance to help with disaster-related expenses, including temporary lodging. For more information please visit www.DisasterAssistance.gov, call 800-621-FEMA (3362) or use the FEMA App.

    • Residents who used Florida Housing’s Homeownership Loan Program (HLP) may be eligible for Disaster Relief Assistance through US Bank. Please visit their website for more information: Disaster relief assistance | Here for you | U.S. Bank (usbank.com)

    • Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, and Federal Housing Administration loans (FHA) back the majority of U.S. mortgages – and each has some kind of program to help homeowners struggling to pay their monthly mortgage payment after a disaster. Disaster relief options are offered to homeowners in declared major disaster areas.

Foreclosure and other legal proceedings are also suspended while homeowners are on a forbearance plan. Click here to learn more.

    • Operation Blue Roof: Operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Operation Blue Roof provides homeowners and permanently occupied rental properties in disaster areas with fiber-reinforced sheeting to cover their damaged roofs until arrangements can be made for permanent repairs.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE October 21, 2022
    CONTACT: FDEM Communications Office, (850) 815-4940 | media@em.myflorida.com 

    The Florida Division of Emergency Management Announces Sign-Up Extension for Operation Blue Roof in Response to Hurricane Ian

    ~ Impacted residents can now apply through Tuesday, November 1~

    Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) announced that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has extended sign-ups for Operation Blue Roof through Tuesday, November 1.

    Operation Blue Roof missions are currently being conducted in Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Lee and Sarasota counties. To date, more than 6,000 Blue Roofs have been installed by the USACE.

    Operation Blue Roof is a priority mission managed by the USACE for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The goal of the Blue Roof program is to provide homeowners in disaster areas with fiber-reinforced, industrial-strength sheeting to protect storm-damaged roofs until homeowners can make permanent repairs.

    This program is for primary residences or permanently occupied rental properties with less than 50 percent structural damage. Vacation rental properties are not eligible for this program.

    After the Blue Roof is installed, the structure is declared habitable. Not all roof types qualify for the program. Roofs that are flat or made of metal or clay, slate, or asbestos tile do not qualify. All storm debris must be removed for the roof to qualify.

    Residents impacted by Hurricane Ian can sign up for free at Blueroof.US. Here, households can sign up for Blue Roof assistance using a Right of Entry (ROE) form, which gathers information about the impacted residence. The ROE is a legal document that allows Corps workers to access your property and assess your home’s damage. The ROE also allows contracted crews to work on your roof. Residents can also call toll-free 1-888-ROOF-BLU (1-888-766-3258) for more information.

  • Tallahassee, FL - On October 10, 2018, Hurricane Michael made landfall in Northwest Florida as a Category 5 hurricane, destroying homes and businesses, and forcing families to look for new places to live and work. Thanks to state and federal resources, as well as the determination, resiliency, and hard work of these communities, they have been able to rebuild and invest in the future of the region. Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) is proud to have supported these efforts through homeownership programs and partnerships with developers to rebuild much needed rental housing throughout the impacted area. During this time of recovery, Florida Housing provided more than $15 million for down payment and closing cost assistance and invested $75 million into workforce housing properties.

    Unfortunately, now four years later, Hurricane Ian has left thousands of Floridians in a similar situation, looking for new places to live and work. As their recovery efforts begin, Florida Housing is committed to standing with them every step of the way and supporting housing needs across Southwest Florida through every means available.

    “Florida Housing continues to support areas in recovery from Hurricane Michael, though we are now very focused on assisting the families in Southwest Florida that have been impacted by Hurricane Ian,” said Trey Price, Executive Director of Florida Housing Finance Corporation. “Our team recognizes that recovery does not happen overnight. While we are working to ensure families have the necessary information for temporary housing assistance, our major role is being a part of long-term solutions. We appreciate the leadership from Governor DeSantis, the state Legislature, and other agency partners as we all work together to provide the support needed to help these communities rebuild.”

    Following Hurricane Michael, Florida Housing established the Hurricane Michael Recovery Loan Program, which assisted more than 1,000 families by providing first mortgage assistance at record low interest rates, along with up to $15,000 in down payment and closing cost assistance. Florida Housing has also financed the development of 12 new multifamily rental properties with 962 total units to replace those that were destroyed in the storm and establish new housing for low and moderate-income families in the region. This equates to a $90 million total commitment dedicated to helping the community recover from such a devastating disaster.

    In response to Hurricane Ian, Florida Housing is working to provide information on disaster relief resources, particularly as it relates to housing. At this time, families impacted by Hurricane Ian may be eligible for the following assistance:

    • Individuals that have been displaced from their homes are encouraged to visit www.FloridaHousingSearch.org.

  • Program has provided nearly $25 million in assistance to Florida families.

    Tallahassee, FL - Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) announced today that the Hometown Heroes Housing program has provided nearly $25 million in assistance to help essential community workers purchase a home in Florida. In late May, Governor DeSantis announced the launch of Hometown Heroes, which provides down payment and closing cost assistance to more than 100 eligible professions. Since the program’s launch on June 1, a total of $24 million has been provided to 1,642 families throughout the state. The top occupations currently utilizing this program are veterans/active-duty military, nurses, teachers, and law enforcement officers.

    “This Labor Day we celebrate the power of hardworking Americans and recognize the contributions of these individuals to our country’s success,” said Trey Price, Executive Director of Florida Housing Finance Corporation. “In just three months, the Hometown Heroes program has allowed us to directly assist thousands of Floridians that make up an essential part of our state’s labor force. These individuals work hard to serve their communities and we’re proud to show our appreciation by providing the necessary financial assistance to help them achieve the American Dream of homeownership.”

    “The Hometown Heroes program has changed our lives,” said Carolina and Jordan, first time homebuyers in Clermont, Florida. “We’ve lived in many places throughout the state while Carolina worked as a nurse and have been saving for years, but buying a home has always been just out of reach. Then we heard about Florida’s Hometown Heroes program and knew this could finally be our chance to set down roots. We connected with Kevin Royer from Compass Real Estate and Jon Howard at the Home Loan Expert, one of Florida Housing’s participating loan officers, and now just a few weeks later we are closing on our first home. We’re extremely grateful for this program and to everyone who has helped us along the way.”

    More than 100 professions are currently eligible for the Hometown Heroes program, including law enforcement officers, firefighters, educators, healthcare workers, and active-duty military or veterans. Eligible homebuyers can receive up to 5% of their first mortgage loan amount (up to a maximum of $25,000) in the form of a 0%, non-amortizing, 30-year second mortgage. To qualify for this program, homebuyers must connect with one of Florida Housing’s participating loan officers, have a minimum credit score of 640, provide certification for one of the eligible occupations and meet the income threshold for their county.

    For more information on the Florida Hometown Heroes Housing Program, please visit www.floridahousing.org/hometownheroes.

  • CAPE CORAL, FL - Yesterday, Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida Housing Finance Corporation announced the June 1 launch of the Florida Hometown Heroes Housing Program to help Floridians in over 50 critical professions purchase their first home. The Hometown Heroes Housing Program will be available to Floridians including law enforcement officers, firefighters, educators, healthcare professionals, childcare employees, and active military or veterans. Including this $100 million program, the Governor also announced his intent to support the total of nearly $363 million appropriated for affordable and workforce housing in the 2022-2023 budget, the highest total in 15 years.

    The program is administered by the Florida Housing and Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) and has the highest and most inclusive eligibility of all Florida Housing down payment assistance programs. The program is geared to expanding on Florida’s existing housing programs to reach critical workers and those who have served our country. Learn more about the program here or by contacting the Hometown Heroes call center at 844-247-6555.

    “In Florida, we value the contributions of our police, firefighters, teachers, and nurses,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “Our hometown heroes are the backbone of Florida communities and making sure that they can afford to be homeowners is a great way to give back to them and support the future of the American Dream.”

    “Florida Housing is extremely grateful to those who have remained committed to serving their communities, especially during these challenging financial times,” said Trey Price, Executive Director of Florida Housing Finance Corporation. “Hometown Heroes will provide the financial assistance necessary to help these hardworking individuals finally achieve the American Dream of homeownership, and we look forward to the positive impacts this accomplishment will have on so many Florida families.”

    “DEO is proud to stand beside Governor DeSantis as he prioritizes our state’s vital workers, including our first responders, nurses, and teachers,” said DEO Secretary Dane Eagle. “These men and women are heroes who ensure our communities’ crucial needs are met, and we are grateful to take part in this initiative to show our gratitude.”

    “Recently I started looking to buy a house. With the help of my realtor and loan officer, there was so much that I didn’t know about, and they were able to help me and guide me,” said Officer Ashton Wolfe, Cape Coral Police Department. “I joined the military when I was 18. I was stationed in Washington, and when I left the military, I came back to Cape Coral to serve my community as a police officer. The program Salute Our Soldiers, which is becoming the Hometown Heroes program, allowed me to buy a house at the age of 23 and I am the only 23-year-old I know that is buying a home, so it has done great things for me.”

    “I have been a teacher for 25 years,” said Melba Lugo, Second Grade Teacher, Mid Cape Global Academy. “In one day, I changed cities, I changed jobs and I bought a house. Thank you for this program and I want to thank all of these people that have made this possible. Owning a house seemed like such a distant, far away dream. I am 63 and at this age you are supposed to be paying off your mortgage, but everything is good and beautiful when you walk in God’s time.”

    Florida Housing received $100 million from the state Legislature this year to establish and administer the Florida Hometown Heroes Housing Program. This program will aid essential community workers in 50 different eligible professions with down payment and closing cost assistance to help first-time, income-qualified homebuyers purchase a primary residence in the communities they serve. Funds will be available to reserve starting June 1, which coincides with National Homeownership Month. This occasion celebrates the value that owning a home brings to families, communities, and neighborhoods across America.

    To qualify for this program, homebuyers must connect with a participating loan officer, have a minimum credit score of 640, provide certification for one of the eligible occupations and meet the income threshold for their county. Eligible borrowers will receive up to 5% of the first mortgage loan amount (up to a maximum of $25,000) in down payment and closing cost assistance in the form of a 0%, non-amortizing, 30-year deferred second mortgage.
