You may recall the tornado that touched down around the Iona area back in January. It did significant damage to several neighborhoods, totally destroying several mobile homes.

On Thursday, Governor DeSantis announced more than $2 million is available to communities impacted by the tornado in Southwest Florida.

The funds are available through the State Housing Initiative Program. This funding will be used to assist Florida families by replacing their mobile homes destroyed by the tornado. Homeowners whose properties sustained damage directly related to the tornado in Southwest Florida may contact their local SHIP office for assistance. Here is the link for Lee County.

“I am committed to making sure that Floridians have the necessary resources to rebuild following a disaster,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “Our state agencies continue to work with private, public, and local partners to provide meaningful assistance and ensure these communities have access to resources that aid their recovery efforts.”

SHIP is administered by the Florida Housing Finance Corporation and is designed to address the unmet housing needs of very low, low, and moderate-income families.
