The First of Many
This was the first FMA home elevation program the City was approved for and was so large that it took three rounds to complete. The grant was originally approved for 21 homes, but two homes withdrew from the process after realizing their home was not covered at 100%.
The 19 homes were divided into three rounds, and unfortunately, this grant took four (4) years to complete due to one of the elevation contractors declaring bankruptcy in the middle of elevating homes. While this was a good learning point for all parties involved, it contributed to not being approved for the 2014 and 2015 FMA elevation grants.
