It seems that My Safe Florida Home is just the latest in state programming that might meet its maker too soon.
In case you’re out of the loop, My Safe Florida Homes is a program that provides free wind inspections for homeowners as well as helps partner with them to make any repairs needed. In short, it helps make the state a bit safer from a hurricane and also helps the homeowner cut down on their property insurance.
Unfortunately, our Do Nothing Governor has been too busy too extend the funding for the program, which ended in May.
Alex Sink, our Do Something CFO, has been paying attention, and she’s asking the legislature to put an additional $25 million dollars into the program, allowing for 2500 homes to be retrofitted and give 100k more homes a free wind inspection.
Thanks, Alex. At least someone is doing their job in Tallahassee.
