Due to a policy change from the State of Texas, Carrollton residents interested in building in-ground or above ground tornado/safe rooms are now eligible to qualify for the Metro Safe Room Rebate Program.

This program allows qualified individuals to apply to receive a rebate of half the cost of construction of a safe room up to $3,000. The money is from FEMA mitigation funds administered by the North Central Texas Council of governments. Please click here to read the press release from NCTCOG for complete eligibility and restriction information. The website for the program is available here: http://www.nctsaferoom.com/.

Citizens will be able to begin applying via the website during the first business week in June. Applicants will be directed by the COG program page to the appropriate local contacts to seek both non-flood plain certification and the appropriate building permits and inspections.
