PLANET THREE ELEVATION HAS BEEN APPROVED AS A CONTRACTOR FOR THE HMGP GRANT PROGRAM IN GALVESTON COUNTY, TEXAS
Home elevation contractor, Planet Three Elevation (P3) is approved as a designated contractor to provide FEMA-funded home lifting for Galveston County homeowners.
Galveston County, TX, November 12, 2021 – Dickinson-based Planet Three Elevation will begin to work with Galveston County for residential elevation projects that will occur in 2022 after years of repetitive flooding disasters. Funding is provided through FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP).
Residents in multiple areas of Galveston County will benefit from the HMGP Grant. After some of the highest flooding recorded in decades, multiple counties in Texas have required a better solution to flood mitigation efforts. HMGP programs are designed to reduce the overall risk to the population and structures from future flooding events, while also reducing reliance on federal funding in future disasters. In addition, most homes will benefit from lower flood insurance premiums once the work is completed.
We can’t stop the rising water, but we can safely lift your home with expertise and precision; removing it from repetitive flood loss. This is a problem Planet Three Elevation can solve.
-Wayne Fairley, Planet Three CEO
