About Operation Blue Roof

In disaster areas, Operation Blue Roof is a program for homeowners who have damage to their roofs. The program sends licensed contractors out to homes to cover the damage with fiber-reinforced plastic sheeting (tarp) until homeowners can arrange repairs.

Operation Blue Roof allows residents to stay in their homes, instead of paying for temporary housing or hotels. The program also protects property while homeowners recover from the storm. 

This is a free service to homeowners with homes that are primary residences or permanently occupied rental properties that have less than 50 percent structural damage. Vacation rental properties are not eligible for the program. Not all roof types qualify for the program (see eligibility below).

Operation Blue Roof is not distributing free tarps

Operation Blue Roof is a "full service" mission and will send contractors out to install blue plastic sheeting on residents' roofs as residents arrange permanent repairs.
Contact your county's emergency manager or your local FEMA disaster recovery center to find out whether free "self-help" tarps are being distributed in your area.
