  • Storm Shelter Grant & Rebate Programs: How to Apply

oklahoma has several storm shelter grant and rebate programs

where to find storm shelter grants and rebates and how to apply

What if you could get a storm shelter for ½ price? Or even better – almost FREE?

Over the last several years, we have installed more storm shelters & safe rooms for storm shelter grant and storm shelter rebate recipients than we can count. We’ve worked with American Red Cross, numerous cities and counties in Oklahoma that have received FEMA grant money, and most Native American Tribes in Oklahoma.

Some homeowners have paid as little as $250 for their storm shelters.

Storm shelter grants & rebates both give homeowners assistance in purchasing a storm shelter, but they work a little differently. Before we get into the “how to apply” part of this post, let’s learn the difference between the two.

SIDE NOTE: Storm shelter grant and rebates are not offered through storm shelter installation companies. They’re offered through government, Red Cross and tribal assistance.

what is the difference between storm shelter grants and storm shelter rebates?

Storm Shelter Rebates

A Storm Shelter Rebate program offers the homeowner a rebate of a certain dollar amount or percentage of the storm shelter value.

With the rebate programs, the homeowner must pay for the storm shelter in full at the time of installation. Once the storm shelter has been installed, the homeowner will file all of the required paperwork – provided by the installer – to the city, county or organization issuing the storm shelter rebate will then process your rebate check. This process could take up to 12 weeks or longer.

If you can’t pay for your storm shelter up front, don’t give up your spot in the program just yet. We offer financing starting at 2.99% APR.

Storm Shelter Grants

A Storm Shelter Grant program offers financial assistance to homeowners up front. The value of storm shelter grants vary by organization. Many of the grant programs offer the homeowner $1,750-$5,000+. The homeowner is responsible for the difference.

At the time of installation, the homeowner gives us the grant paperwork and a check for the remainder of the balance.

Our most popular storm shelter with the grant and rebate programs is the 6×8 slope front. Your grant voucher + the remaining balance are due at the time of installation. We submit everything needed and the organization pays the grant money directly to us.
