South Plains Association of Governments (SPAG) administering Safe Room Rebate Program

SPAG

The South Plains Association of Governments (SPAG) will be administering The Safe Room Rebate Program. These grants are funded through Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) and administered locally by our staff at the South Plains Association of Governments (SPAG).

The grants will help better prepare the residents of the South Plains to take shelter from potential storms. Eligible recipients include homeowners who live in the following counties: Dickens, Floyd, Garza, Hale, Hockley, King, Lamb, Lubbock, Lynn, Motley, Bailey, Cochran, Crosby, Terry and Yoakum.

“"This is a great opportunity for our citizens," said Jeffrey Snyder, Plainview City Manager.

As with any grant, there are standards and guidelines to apply to participate in this program. The program is completely voluntary and is not retroactive - safe rooms installed prior to being accepted to participate in the Program are not eligible for a rebate. Applicants must own their home and must pay the contractor/installer in full (out-of-pocket) to receive a 50% rebate of the eligible costs (up to a maximum rebate of $3,000). Homes located in a local or FEMA – designated floodplain are not eligible for the rebate program.

"A special thank you to SPAG for administering this program," said Mayor Wendell Dunlap.
