Homeowners who did not receive the maximum Road Home grant award will soon be able to apply for $7,500 to install storm shutters and other defenses on their homes to protect against hurricanes.

This week, letters will be sent to homeowners telling them how they can apply for the grant.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development approved the grant program last
Friday.

The state plans to use $195 million to cover this storm-proofing program.
