How to Get Federal Assistance To Build A Storm Shelter

  • I did not know that federal assistance was even possible. I am so glad I found this article to share with you. I know a vast majority of us can’t afford to build a storm shelter but a lot of us can through the help of the government. Now, I know a lot of us don’t want to rely on the government but chances are if you don’t earn a lot you could get a grant to build one. You don’t pay grants back! Even if you earn a lot you can get special financing that is lower than banks so if you think about it, it’s a win win for us all! Even if you don’t need a shelter, this knowledge could help a lot of people so let them know!
