The State of Kansas, through the Kansas Division of Emergency Management, has initiated the Sunflower-safe residential safe room program. This program is designed to provide a rebate for the purchase and installation of a residential safe room for Kansas homeowners. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) states that safe rooms can provide "near absolute protection" based on current knowledge of tornados and hurricanes.
Kansas is offering this rebate program through the FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), contingent upon funding, and must comply with all federal grant regulations, to include eligibility of properties and other required documentation.
The Sunflower-safe rebate program is currently taking applications for homeowners that reside in Kansas. In order to determine eligibility, we ask that you read the program handbook.
Note that eligible applicants are randomly selected as funding becomes available and eligibility does not guarantee funding.
