Report Private Property Damage


Residents with damage to their home or property due to a weather related event may use the form below to report the damage to Santa Rosa County. Once submitted, your information will be sent to several Santa Rosa County Departments including emergency management, public works, floodplain management and grants.

  • Helps county staff to direct assistance groups like the American Red Cross, Salvation Army or other volunteer services to a specific area.
  • Gathers contact information which may be used to relay important damage related information to storm survivors.
  • Creates a historical damage database for county use when applying for future mitigation projects or grants which may improve the public infrastructure of an area.

Submitting your property damage information does not:

  • DOES NOT register you for any specific assistance programs including any that may be offered by FEMA. If assistance programs are available, you must apply directly with those organizations. Monitor your local media or visit for announcements on how to apply for any assistance that is available. If you do not have housing, food, or clothing, please contact the Citizen Information Line at (850) 983-INFO or 4636 for emergency assistance.
