Santa Rosa County Local Mitigation Strategy Task Force

Purpose:
The purpose of the Santa Rosa County Local Mitigation Strategy Task Force is to decrease the vulnerability of the citizens, governments, businesses and institutions of Santa Rosa County to the future human, economic and environmental costs of natural, technological, and societal disasters. To this end, the Task Force develops, monitors, implements, and maintains a comprehensive plan for hazard mitigation. Funding for the prevention and recovery from disasters from the state and federal government is directly linked to the existence of this Task Force and the work that it accomplishes throughout the county to mitigate the impact of disasters.

Membership:
Membership in the Task Force is open to all jurisdictions, organizations and individuals supporting its purposes. Membership is accomplished through the completion of a Member Information Form. The Member Information Form should be submitted to the Task Force support staff for a signature of acknowledgement by the current Task Force Chair. A database of members and contact information will be maintained by the Task Force support staff.

Latest Information

Upcoming Meetings Meetings are held in the Public Services Complex Media Room located at 6051 Old Bagdad Hwy, Milton.

Hardening/Mitigation Grant Information:
For information on hardening your home (shutters, elevation, roof strengthening) please contact the Santa Rosa County Special Projects/Grants Department at (850) 983-1848 or email us: Mitigation Task Force. The County does not currently have a grant to harden homes. We do maintain a waiting list and when a grant opens we work with the individual homeowners to help them submit applications. Most of these grants require a minimum of 25% from the homeowner. If you would like to be placed on the Residential Hardening Waiting List please complete one of the residential proposal forms. Residents may also contact Rebuild Northwest Florida at 497-7024 to check the availability of grant funds. If you are a low to moderate income resident and need help repairing or hardening your home, please call the Santa Rosa County Housing Program at (850) 981-7075.

If you are a non-profit, municipality, school or healthcare organization and wish to submit an LMS application for consideration of a hazard mitigation project, please complete the LMS Initiatives Proposal Form. Please be sure to read all of the instructions. Submission information is on the form. To view the list of current LMS Initiatives, please view Table 6.2 in Section 6 of the LMS Plan.


The Santa Rosa County LMS 2011-2016 Plan has been reviewed and approved by Federal Emergency Management Agency (F.E.M.A.) and adopted by the Santa Rosa County Board of County Commissioners. Each municipality has adopted the 2011-2016 LMS Plan and the formal adoption letter has been received from F.E.M.A.

Due to the large file size associated with the plan including appendices, we have provided individual sections below for your convenience.

  • Property acquisition and demolition or relocation;
  • Elevation of existing structure;
  • Mitigation Reconstruction when elevation is not feasible; and
  • Dry-Flood proofing of historic structures.
  • Localized minor flood control
  • Elevation, relocation, or floodproofing of utilities
