Strengthen Your Home with Home Safety Solutions & My Safe Florida Home

Empowering Florida Homeowners Against Hurricanes

In 2022, the Florida Legislature reintroduced the My Safe Florida Home (MSFH) program, a groundbreaking initiative designed to assist homeowners in fortifying their homes against hurricanes and navigating the increasing challenges of property insurance. As a committed partner in this mission, Home Safety Solutions is at the forefront of guiding you through the MSFH program, ensuring enhanced protection for your home and reduced insurance costs.

How the My Safe Florida Home Program Works

Step 1: Free Home Wind Mitigation Inspection

Florida homeowners who own a single-family, owner-occupied residential property home, valued up to $700,000 in Florida are eligible to apply for a free home wind mitigation inspection. This service, provided by MSFH, offers a detailed evaluation of your home’s preparedness against hurricanes. The resulting report identifies your home’s current strengths and weaknesses when facing hurricanes, along with recommendations for enhancing its resilience.

Step 2: Plan for Home-Strengthening Improvements

Following the inspection, qualified homeowners can access up to $10,000 in matching grant funds for executing the recommended strengthening upgrades. These upgrades not only secure your home but also potentially qualify you for significant annual reductions in insurance premiums. Our experts will guide you through this process, ensuring that you have a clear understanding of the recommended enhancements and their benefits.

Step 3: Invest in Your Home’s Safety

Investing in your home’s safety through the MSFH program is more than just a wise decision for your home. For every $1 you spend on eligible strengthening improvements, the state matches with $2, up to a total of $10,000. These enhancements can lead to substantial savings on your insurance premiums, making this a smart long-term investment. Taking proactive steps today reinforces your commitment to safety and ensures that your home remains a secure haven for your family for years to come.

Program Updates and Availability

(As of September 22, 2023)
The MSFH program is constantly evolving. Currently, applicants with a ‘Submitted’ status will remain in the queue for additional funding. Those who have completed inspections, but not yet submitted grant applications, will need to wait for the portal to reopen once more funding is approved. Historically, the Florida legislature has allocated funds to the MSFH program annually. We expect new funding soon! In the meantime, new applicants for home inspections are still being accepted.

Home Safety Solutions remains committed to keeping you informed and supported through each stage of your application and implementation process. Whether awaiting funding, scheduling inspections, or applying for the first time, our team is here to assist you every step of the way.
