Zero percent home loans help residents prepare for hurricanes

Pinellas County, FL -- Pinellas County may be able to assist qualified homeowners with a zero percent interest loan to prepare their homes for hurricane season.  

The maximum loan is $20,000 amortized for up to 20 years.  Eligible improvements are roofs, windows, doors and more.

A $2,000 grant is also available to assist disabled homeowners in the removal of barriers and to add features that will make their homes easier to navigate.  Improvements may include the addition of wheelchair ramps, grab bars in bathrooms and equipment for the hearing impaired.  

“These programs are instrumental in helping residents improve their homes and enhance their neighborhood. As we move into hurricane season, many of the improvements may help homeowners mitigate storm damage,” Anthony M. Jones, director of Pinellas County Community Development said in a release.

Properties located inside the city limits of Clearwater, Largo, St. Petersburg and Belleair Shore are not eligible for this program.

Please contact those cities for information. This is a limited-time offer.

Additional information is available by calling Community Development at (727) 464-8210 or emailing cdprograms@pinellascounty.org.
