Florida experienced the destructive impact of four hurricanes in 2004. The hurricanes created both short-term and long-term housing needs for Floridians. To implement the February 2005 recommendations of the Governor’s Hurricane Housing Work Group, the Hurricane Housing Recovery program, hereafter referred to as the HHR program, is created for the purpose of providing funds to assist those areas of the state with the greatest housing damage from the hurricanes suffered by the State of Florida during 2004. Program funding is provided for eligible entities to implement a hurricane housing recovery assistance plan that may include grants and loans for homeownership and rental activities, including activities related to manufactured housing.
