Peace of Mind

Directory of service providers trained on the standard and the verification process.

Improved Value

Fortified homes are more likely to sell faster than non-FORTIFIED homes due to the decreased cost to own it.

Stronger Community

As more new homes are built, and older homes are retrofitted, to the FORTIFIED standard, communities as a whole become stronger and more resilient.

Grant Opportunity

Potential qualification for financial incentives.


Every year, communities are impacted by severe weather. See how homeowners who wanted protection that goes beyond building codes used the FORTIFIED program to get peace of mind when storms hit.

It's nice to have the peace of mind that when we do have high-wind events that your home can withstand the wind.

My roof was 17 years old, and I already was considering replacing it. After I got the letter, I immediately went online to the web portal identified in the letter to apply. I love my new roof. You can’t even see where the old vents were,” Mirabilio says. “It was cheaper with the grant, I got an insurance discount, and it’s a better roof.
