Grant and financial assistance info- 

Several states have some form of financial assistance available for home-owners to obtain storm shelters. Check with your state's Emergency Management Department or FEMA office to see if your purchase of a Safe Shed can qualify for any grant or low interest loan funds. The Rural Development Department of USDA has also offered a Rural Storm Shelter program in some areas with high incidences of tornado activity. Some programs require a pre-approval prior to your purchase. We have worked with many state and municipal offices to demonstrate that our product meets the FEMA publication 320 guidelines for a safe and stable storm shelter.
