Quick Start Disaster Recovery Program
The Quick Start Disaster Recovery Program provides assistance as a last resort when private insurance and federal assistance are not adequate to return a damaged home to its pre-disaster condition. The program is activated in the event of a federally declared natural disaster and provides a no-interest loan for home repair that is forgiven if the owner remains in the home for 10 years. Funding for repairs to rental housing properties is also available under similar terms and conditions.
Most recently, Quick Start aided victims of the 2012 flooding in Northeast Minnesota. The program is not currently active.
