North Central Texas (NCT) Safe Room Rebate Program
The Metro Safe Room Rebate Program application process is now closed. However, the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) has opened an online wait list for the North Central Texas Safe Room Rebate Program (NCTRRP). The wait list will not close.
Those who have already submitted an application for the Metro Safe Room Rebate Program (MSRRP) will be notified that their application was received and do not need to reapply. The wait list will be open to all 16 counties in the NCTCOG region.
To participate, applicants must meet the following criteria:
Since this rebate program uses Federal funds, NCTCOG is required by federal law to comply with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. The purpose of the Section 106 consultation process is for Federal agencies to take into account what effects their projects will have on historic properties. Therefore, if the home was built in or before 1968 (45 years old), a review from the State Historical Preservation Office (SHPO) will be requested by NCTCOG on the applicant's behalf, prior to the applicant being approved to receive a rebate. This does not deem the applicant ineligible, this is just an additional review phase required in some cases.
