We're a not-for-profit promoting stronger construction standards and improved building codes while advocating for policies that create resilient communities. 

Why the name Smart Home America?

Home is where we live, work and play. We educate families, business owners, municipalities, and States about how to access the resources that will keep them informed, protected and ready to prepare for, or recover from the worst Mother Nature throws at us. While your fridge ordering groceries is neat, that's not our focus. We're here to protect your largest investment, your home.

What's your goal?

Cut through the clutter to provide people the knowledge and advice they need to make the smart, informed decisions that will improve their lives, strengthen their homes, and secure their future.

Why do this?

To significantly reduce the risk of loss and damage from severe weather. We are saving people, businesses, and communities money, time, and heartache.
