HALL OF FAME: Smart Home America

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”sky” align=”align_left” border_width=”10″ el_width=”10″][vc_column_text letter_spacing=”” el_class=”blue-drk”]

Smart Home America (SHA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit grassroots resilience education, advocacy and action organization based in Mobile, Alabama.

(www.smarthomeamerica.org)

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text letter_spacing=”” el_class=”lead”]Without government or NGO support, it pioneered and now leads the nation in promoting, developing and certifying code-plus homes to Fortified standards.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]Fortified is a wind-resilient construction and rating standard recently developed by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS). Over the past 3 years, SHA has certified over a 1000 homes in the vulnerable Alabama coastline. SHA was able to secure incentives from local insurance companies to incentivize its program. It is developing a network of qualified construction resources and helps connect consumers with these.

Though still small and in need of support, it aims to grow its residential base and expand into commercial buildings. It is also looking to transfer knowledge, experience and transplant its successful model to other vulnerable areas, such as Texas and South Carolina.

We salute SHA for making homes stronger and safer in the Gulf Coast, and becoming a role model for other areas.
