LA | Commissioner Jim Donelon announced today that the Louisiana Fortify Homes Program (LFHP) will open its third round of grants at noon on November 6. There are 750 grants available in the third round, and grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. This round of grants is open to all homeowners whose home meets the criteria required for upgrading to the FORTIFIED Roof™ standard. The LFHP provides grants of up to $10,000 for homeowners to repair or replace their roofs to the FORTIFIED Roof™ standard of the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS).
More information is available at www.ldi.la.gov/fortifyhomes. Those interested in the program are encouraged to review eligibility information and frequently asked questions on the LFHP website cited above to determine whether their home meets the requirements for the program.
