REBUILD Northwest Florida, Inc.

REBUILD Northwest Florida began as a grassroots effort by a core group of individuals focused on strengthening communities in 2004. Established in response to Hurricane Ivan, which struck on September 16, 2004, REBUILD Northwest Florida has grown into a public/private partnership that exists to coordinate recovery initiatives and home fortification. REBUILD has completed over 13,000 home mitigation projects and is the only program of its kind in the United States.

REBUILD Northwest Florida is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
