Disaster relief resources and information

In the wake of the devastation the State of Florida has experienced due to recent natural disasters, Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing) is working with state and federal officials to provide information on disaster relief resources and information. This webpage provides available resources to assist you or those you know with recovery efforts. Florida Housing will continue to provide updates as more resources and information becomes available.

  • The Hurricane Housing Recovery Program (HHRP) is currently available to assist families with hurricane recovery purposes that include, but are not limited to, repair and replacement of housing; acquisition of building materials for home repair and construction; payment of insurance deductibles for storm-related damages, and housing reentry assistance such as security deposits, utility deposits, and temporary storage of household items.
