Hurricane Michael Grants Announced Workshops Planned in Affected Counties
Governor Ron DeSantis announced the launch of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity’s (DEO) efforts to access more than $735 million for long-term recovery efforts for Hurricane Michael-impacted communities. DEO will lead the state’s efforts in developing the State Action Plan that will provide a high-level strategy for how the funding will be used to address eligible communities’ unmet, long-term recovery needs. The State Action Plan will be developed with input from our state and community partners, as well as citizens. After HUD reviews and approves Florida’s State Action Plan, HUD and DEO will sign a grant agreement to release the funding to be used for Hurricane Michael recovery projects.
