Applications being accepted to help homeowners prepare for severe weather
Pasco County Community Development is now accepting applications for the Hurricane Loss Mitigation Program (HLMP), which is designed to help homeowners prepare for potential hurricanes. The program includes installation of the following: roofing, gable end bracing, truss or rafter-to-wall connections, impact-resistant doors, window storm shutters and/or impact windows. All items must be installed or verified as existing to meet the requirements of the HLMP.
There is no income cap to be eligible for this program. The maximum household value (according to the Pasco County Property Appraiser) cannot exceed $350,000.00.
Funding for this program will be provided through a zero percent interest mortgage placed on the homeowner’s property. Loan terms will be determined by the amount of assistance provided and the homeowner’s ability to repay the loan.
Residents living in unincorporated Pasco County, as well as the cities of Dade City, Zephyrhills, New Port Richey, and Port Richey are encouraged to apply.
To request an application, please contact the Community Development Department at 727.834.3445.
