Mitigation Investment for the Nation

Flood mitigation alternatives

repetetive flood properties should be aided with flood mitigation other than raising home. grants can only be used for raising property. engineers should be able to come up with some other mitigation alternatives. most elderly residents do not have funds available this grant does not cover full cost. additionally raising would make home inaccessible for senior citizens without installation of elevator. another costly project. if you do not raise home you are penalized by paying an additonal 25% in flood insurance each year. we simply cannot afford to live in our home any longer and thus giving up our dream of retiring at the beach. my husband served the country well both as a vietnam veteran and a firefighter and now we are in a position that we certainly can't control.
