Two additional counties, Indian River and Monroe, are eligible for debris removal and repair or replacement of disaster-damaged public facilities.

All 67 counties and the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida are eligible for emergency protective measures. FEMA has approved 100 percent federal funding for debris removal and emergency protective measures, including direct federal assistance for a period of 60 days.
