The City of Edmond will accept applications for the Safe Room Rebate program June 1 through June 30.

The selection process will consist of using a random generator to assign a number to each application. The top 500 applications will be submitted to FEMA for approval and funding. Please note the selection process is not based on a first come first serve basis.

The Safe Room Rebate program is contingent on the City of Edmond receiving funds from the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA). FEMA may approve the applications without immediately providing funding, so funding may be delayed. The maximum allowable rebate amount is 75% of the construction cost not to exceed $2,000.

There is a limited amount of funding available and Edmond residents with completed and FEMA approved applications (meeting FEMA criteria) will enter into a selection process through the City of Edmond.

Residents must reside within Edmond corporate city limits. Safe Room construction must not begin prior to the applicant receiving an approval of funds letter from the City of Edmond.

The Safe Room must meet shelter/safe room construction requirements of FEMA 320. Safe room rebates are for the recipient's principle residence only.  Other frequently asked questions are available at Safe Room Rebate FAQ's.

To ensure all standards and criteria are met, the City of Edmond requires a building permit for Safe Room/Shelter construction and installation. For information regarding the permitting process please contact Richard Gabel at 405-359-4794.

Applications can be obtained online at Safe Room Rebate Application. The application can be filled in via the online form and it MUST BE PRINTED, SIGNED AND RETURNED TO THE CITY OF EDMOND no later than June 30 at 5 p.m.

FEMA requires a signature for an application to be complete. Those without internet access can obtain an application at 24 E. First St., City Clerk's office.  Completed applications can be mailed to the address on the application or turned in at the City Clerk's office.

Please contact the program administrator, Mike Magee at 405-359-4378 with any questions you may have regarding this program or the application process.  Project updates are also provided on the answer line 405-216-SAFE.
