If you’re counting on a state hurricane grant to strengthen your home, it might be a longer wait than you anticipated.
So far, no cash has been granted. And already, more homeowners are in line than the state has money to dole out.
In Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, a cap on applications for home inspections - the first step in getting a grant - has been exceeded by more than 800.
The one-time grant program, approved by the Florida Legislature in spring, kicked off two months ago. It set aside $250 million to help homeowners pay for shutters, roof bracing and other improvements.
Many residents won’t get money unless the Legislature renews the program next year.

HEY JOE PARKER; CHARLIE CRIST WAS THE INSURANCE COMMISIONER, AND AS “THE TOP COP” SAT AS HEAD OF THE BOARD THAT APPROVED ALL INSURANCE RATE INCREASES.

To ROBBIE ROTH ...
And what exactly is the state’s top LAW ENFORCEMENT officer supposed to do about insurance rates? That logic is like blaming the dog-catcher when the sewer backs up.
I guess I’d rather be “blind” than ignorant.

I SEE THAT PASCO COUNTY WILL ONLY GET 450 GRANTS. WHY BOTHER DOING IT AT ALL? AND, AGAIN THE PEOPLE RUNNING OUR STATE NEED TO ALL BE VOTED OUT. REMEMBER IF YOU KEEP DOING THINKS THE SAME WAY YOU WILL GET THE SAME RESULTS.
