CFO Patronis on Special Session: We’re Going to Put Policyholders First

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Today, Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued a statement on the upcoming special session that will, among other items, address funding for the My Safe Florida Home Program. The program provides funding for free home inspections and match funding for home enhancements to harden homes against storms in an effort to reduce insurance premiums. 

CFO Patronis said, “The My Safe Florida Home Program has been a huge success. With all the cash obligated for work, the Governor and Legislature are taking proactive steps to help more policyholders without waiting for the regular session. This is a big deal. The average policyholder discount has totaled over $1,000 and policyholders have received thousands of dollars for enhancements to their homes. That’s making homes safer from storms and making premiums more affordable for policyholders. I look forward to working with the Governor, President and Speaker for the upcoming session to put policyholders first.”

Currently, funding for homeowners has been fully obligated. For more information on the My Safe Florida Home Program visit
