jointly announced the availability of federal grant funding to assist residents of Baldwin and Mobile Counties in retrofitting their homes against wind damage.
The grants are provided by FEMA and are administered by the Alabama Department of Insurance. A total of $635,920 is available to the two counties -- $432,184 for Baldwin County and $203,736 for Mobile County. The program is expected to supplement retrofit costs for approximately 120 homes in the two counties. Each resident receiving a grant is eligible for 75% of the total wind retrofit project cost, up to $5,000. Applications are prioritized on a first come, first served basis.
The grants are provided as a pilot program for what the delegations and state officials hope is a much larger future program authorized by the Strengthen Alabama Homes Act which passed in 2011.
