Hurricane Loss Mitigation Program (HLMP) 

The City of Lauderdale Lakes received state funding from the Division of Emergency Management to mitigate approved owner-occupied, single-family properties or properties that have firewalls that separate attached units completely within the City of Lauderdale Lakes.  The HLMP program will provide qualified wind resistance construction and installations to be completed in strict compliance with Florida Building Codes and Manufacturer’s Specifications. Mitigating a home means strengthening it against hurricane-force winds to make it safer, providing increased levels of protection for homeowners and their families. Example activities include:

  •    Replacement of roof covering/re-roofing
  •    Installation of window and door opening protection
  •    Installation of hurricane straps
  •    Application of secondary water barrier
