Contractors will start in districts that experienced the most damage due to the hurricanes. Approximately 300 – 350 homes can be repaired. The repairs entail the replacing of T1.11, rafters and or zinc.

With the money allocated the Ministry of VROMI is determined to repair as much roofs possible.

Homeowners who rent out rooms or apartments and their total monthly income is less than 4000 Guilders.
