Hurricane Irma voluntary home buyout program

As part of the Hurricane Irma long-term recovery process, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity’s Office of Disaster Recovery recently created a grant program called the Hurricane Irma Voluntary Home Buyout Program for residents of Miami-Dade County. The program was created to purchase residential property in high flood-risk areas. All properties purchased through this program will become public parks or open public spaces. These properties will not be redeveloped, which will help protect lives in future storms and will help provide flood-protection for surrounding areas. This funding is intended to help residents in low and moderate-income communities impacted by Irma.

Miami-Dade County submitted an application to the State on Sept. 27, 2019 on behalf of interested residents living in Unincorporated Miami-Dade County. For more information about the program, contact
