Know that financial help is here if you are planning to build a storm shelter for your school. To help schools with the cost of building safe rooms, the Federal government has set up funding to offset the cost. For more information, head over to the FEMA fact sheet on the hazard mitigation grant program link.
You must meet the ICC-500 requirements, and the FEMA P-361 guidelines to be eligible for funding. It is important to ensure that any component of the storm shelter meets both the ICC-500 requirements as well as the FEMA P-361 guidelines.
