Property owners in Sarasota County whose homes were impacted by Hurricane Ian are invited to apply for the Resilient SRQ Housing Recovery Program. 

The county was awarded $201.5 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery Program, of which $55 million is allocated to the Housing Recovery Program. Eligible homeowners may apply to receive funds for rehabilitation, reconstruction and reimbursement for repairs already made.

The program prioritizes low-to-moderate-income households, serving as a crucial funding source to address unmet needs resulting from the storm.

Homeowners can begin the application progress by completing an interest survey online at or by calling 941-861-5309. The survey must be completed to determine eligibility and to receive an invitation to make a full application.

To qualify for the program, Sarasota County residents must meet the following criteria at the time of application submission:

  • Own the damaged home. 
  • Experienced damage to their home from Hurricane Ian. 
  • Used the damaged home as their primary residence prior to Hurricane Ian. 
  • Maintain a mortgage in good standing or be on a payment plan in good standing.
  • Have a household income at or below 80% area median income.

Applications will be accepted as long as funding remains available.
