McEvoy homes has assembled a team to address all of these issues we will handle your project starting with the grant design and engineering correction and adjustment of your grant amounts if needed. We handle all permits, utility disconnect & reconnects in all phases of the construction process. Foundation, framing, mechanical engineering, drywall, decks etc. etc. as required on the project close out the project with the local building departments and close out all required documents with program or other related programs such as ICC gap, etc.
We have an extensive knowledge and understanding of the grant process. If there is an issue with your grant award we will review your grant starting with the WIP (Work In Progress), DOB (duplication of benefits), your ECR (Estimated Cost of Repair) and your elevation / foundation grant amounts. Many times one or all of these are incorrect and will affect your overall grant award.
We are not looking to run the grant number up, all we’re doing is trying to get the correct grant award that you deserve based on the work that will need to be performed on your RREM project.
We will handle all of this process for you. We will deal directly with RREM or your project manager to resolve the difference based on your project type and award. We can sign the contract to the lower grant award that you presently have and go after the additional costs without any exposure to yourself. Basically, if we don’t get the extra money, we will do the project for the grant amount that is on our contract. This amount will match your grant amount from our RREM.
The RREM grant has two purposes, the first is that it bridge between your NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program) flood claim and your actual flood loss and the ECR and elevation needed to mitigate your home properly. We often find that one or both of these have been calculated incorrectly thus affecting the overall grant award.
The RREM grant has two purposes:
- To bridge between your NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program) flood claim and your actual flood loss
- To cover your ECR and elevation costs, which is needed to mitigate your home properly.
We often find that one or both of these have been calculated incorrectly thus affecting the overall grant award.
We have the team of people that understand both sides of the equation. Insurance duplication of benefits and the construction costs to help you get the correct amount of award. We are not trying to run the numbers up, we are just helping you as a homeowner to get the correct award you are due.
If you’re trying to access your ICC claims and have a house that requires you to use that money your grant award you must have what’s called the unmet grant need, that is listed on your award calculation sheet.
You may have been told that your ICC will have to go back to our RREM grant because it’s a duplication of benefits, which is correct, but you can use it if you have an unmet needs on your RREM award calculation. If you need to access your ICC money, At this point, it becomes at that point more important that all parts of your grant have been correctly calculated which includes your WIP, DOB “duplication of benefits”, ECR and the elevation and foundation cost must be correct.
If your current grant award is incorrect McEvoy Homes will review your current award calculation sheet and ECR to determine if we will sign a contract for your present grant amount and do a scope change as we progress through your project or prior to starting it.
