To qualify for this free program homes must be primary residences or a permanently occupied rental property with less than 50% structural damage, excluding vacation rental properties. All storm debris must be removed for the roof to qualify.

Residents must sign a Right of Entry form to allow USACE workers to assess the roof and install the tarp.

To provide sign-ups in areas that may not be able to access the call center or website, the USACE has gone door-to-door and is identifying locations for mobile signup locations in southwest Florida neighborhoods.
