Applications Being Accepted for Grants to Install Tornado Safe Rooms



The Ohio Emergency Management Agency will begin accepting applications on January 6 for grants to install tornado safe rooms. The deadline to apply is April 6. A rebate program offered through the Ohio EMA is meant to encourage residents to install safe rooms to help families survive destructive and potentially deadly tornadoes. The rebate program is funded each year through the Federal Emergency Management Agency Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grant Program and is designed to reimburse a family up to 75 percent of the cost of the shelter and its installation after the shelter is fully installed. https://ema.ohio.gov/ema_saferoom/saferoom-concept.aspx…
