This program is indefinitely suspended by ADEM due to a lack of funding.
Our office will not accept any rebate applications until the program is reinstated.
Below you will find additional information concerning the program including application:
ADEM decided to use these new funds where the most good would be done; helping to save lives by providing an incentive to Arkansans for having
shelters installed on their property.
The State offers up to $1,000 rebate or 50% of the total cost, whichever is less. To date the State of Arkansas has dispersed over $14,000,000
to the citizens of Arkansas.
Over 350 Benton County residents have benefited from this program since its inception.
