WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Palm Beach County leaders are already looking ahead to next year's hurricane season to improve the integrity of homes during a storm.

They're getting the word out early to alert homeowners about programs that offer up to $75,000 for housing rehabilitation assistance.

The application and approval process are expected to get underway during the early part of next year, but county leaders want homeowners to start planning ahead by reaching out to their office with any questions about the program.

"We're doing impact windows and impact doors," said Jonathan Brown, director of housing and economic development in Palm Beach County.  “The benefit for that is it ensures that our low to moderate income families are not in the big box stores come hurricane season trying to find plywood and trying to figure out how to protect their homes."

Once the rehabilitation project is complete, the county will do a wind mitigation report and a four-point inspection so homeowners can share that information with their insurance company and ultimately lower their insurance costs.
