Rebuild Florida - a program of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) created to help Florida recover from the devastating impacts of Hurricane Irma – is scheduled to set up a mobile assistance center for St. Lucie County residents Monday, Feb. 26 – Friday, March 1.
The first phase of Rebuild Florida is the Housing Repair Program, which will assist families to rebuild their homes that were damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Irma, which made landfall on Sept. 10, 2017, causing destruction and damage to thousands of homes in its path. The state of Florida is committed to helping homeowners affected by the storm by rebuilding or replacing damaged homes.
The Rebuild Florida bus will be available to St. Lucie County residents on Monday, Feb. 25 through Thursday, Feb. 28 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday, March 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Winn Dixie shopping center, 281 SW Port St Lucie Blvd., Port St. Lucie, 34984.
Rebuild Florida is a partnership of DEO and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which approved funding to local communities for Florida's long-term recovery efforts after the 2017 hurricane season. Rebuild Florida Housing Repair funds will help eligible homeowners impacted by Hurricane Irma and individuals and families from Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands displaced by Hurricane Maria. Rebuild Florida will repair and rebuild damaged homes across the hardest-hit communities of our state, with priority funding for those low-income residents who are most vulnerable, including the elderly, those with disabilities and families with children aged 5 and younger.
