Flood-Impacted Home Owners are Eligible for Free Home Preparedness Assessments

via County of Boulder
The City of Boulder and Boulder County are participating in a new Home Preparedness Assessment Program. This pilot program provides flood-impacted single family and mobile home owners with a free in-home consultation aimed at enhancing personal resilience. 
Participation in this program will include a consultation with a professional advisor who will identify actions and improvements to help homeowners prepare for and better respond to flood, fire, and drought. Cash rebates will be available to participants to help cover the costs of the suggested improvements. Some improvements may include things such as sump pump inspection and repair, roof and gutter evaluation, and more.

This program is first come, first served, with limited space of up to 100 participants throughout Boulder County. To qualify, homeowners must have been impacted by a flood event and have proper identification (i.e. state issued ID such as a driver’s license).

Interested individuals can sign up now for an assessment by filling out the form at
