Greetings All -

The Legislature sent the budget to the Governor this morning (June 2, 2022) and this afternoon he signed it into law.

The additional $ 7 million that the Legislature placed in the budget for the Mobile Home Tie-Down Program has survived the Governor’s veto pen and this new funding will be available for our Program over the next year!!

I am “Over the Moon” for so many of our members whose homes are on the wait list!!

Please help me spread the word!

As we approach Florida’s most stormy season of the year, many FMO members have already struggled with the consequences of home damage due to several high wind events.

It may be helpful to have information at your fingertips to assist with Energy Relief and Assistance and Weatherization Assistance.

The information below is Lake County specific.  Both the Emergency Assistance Program and Weatherization Assistance Program are managed at the local level by the Lake Community Action Agency, Inc.  Community Services Block Grants are a function of the Department of Economic Opportunity.

Assistance is based on household income need and not the value of the home.  If a repair is needed, the repair cannot increase the value of the home…in other words a new roof would increase the value of the home so a new roof is not considered a repair. 
For Lake County - Click on this link:
Lake Community Action Agency, Inc.
Eustis: (352) 357-5550
Leesburg: (352) 787-1156
Please press the Control Key (Ctrl) and then click on the name to access the website.  Click on “Community Services” in the left column and then “Energy Services Department”.

You will find information for the Weatherization Assistance Program…which is operational and funded on a county by county basis.  The Department of Economic Opportunity is in the process of applying for additional federal funds for this Program.

You may be eligible for assistance to strengthen and harden your home!!
