Hurricane Ian Homeowner Recovery Program Available November 14
VOLUSIA COUNTY, FLORIDA - Beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 14, homeowners affected by Hurricane Ian can apply for financial aid through Volusia County’s Transform386 Hurricane Ian Homeowner Recovery Program. The program will offer qualified applicants the opportunity to request funding for essential home repairs or claim reimbursements for repairs already completed due to the storm.
To qualify, applicants' household income must not exceed 120% of the Area Median Income, as defined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Priority will be provided to lower-income households or those with members aged 17 or younger, 65 or older, or with a disability. Applicants must have owned the home during the impact of Hurricane Ian and must still retain ownership rights with a valid Homestead Exemption in effect. Documentation must be provided to confirm the damages were directly linked to Hurricane Ian.
A link to the application will be available at www.transform386.org. For residents who need in-person assistance to apply, County staff will be available at the following public libraries from 3 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16:
Daytona Beach Regional Library, 105 S. Jackie Robinson Parkway
- DeLand Regional Library, 130 E. Howry Ave.
