Citrus Residents with Homes Impacted by Hurricane Hermine contact Housing Services
Citrus County is considering applying to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (FDEO) for a grant related to Hurricane Hermine for an amount not less than $750,000 under the special disaster appropriation of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program.
All activities, be they housing rehab, mitigation, sewer system overflow repairs, demo/replacement, multifamily repairs, housing purchase incentives or other eligible activities, along with property acquisition buyout, must be accompanied by verifiable documentation of direct impact from Hurricane Hermine. Examples include FEMA claims, Insurance Claims, Emergency Management Inspection reports and photos, Public Assistance inspections, etc.
CDBG- Disaster Recovery (DR) funds are eligible for unmet needs only and cannot be used where duplication of benefit may occur. FEMA funds, insurance funds and other assistance will be considered in any request for assistance under CDBG-DR. This specific CDBG-DR allocation has a priority of unmet housing needs over other possible activities.
If your home was impacted by Hurricane Hermine, and you are in the need of assistance please call Citrus County Housing Services at (352) 527-7520 by Friday, May 11th.
