This week, FloridaCommerce awarded more than $33,000 to the town of Horseshoe Beach through the Community Planning Technical Assistance (CPTA) grant program to develop a strategic plan to facilitate community rebuilding.

On August 30, 2023, storm surge from Hurricane Idalia devastated the community; this grant will lay the foundation for Horseshoe Beach community’s long-term recovery process— better positioning the Town for success and empowering the community to leverage future grant opportunities.

“Under Governor Ron DeSantis’ leadership, the Town of Horseshoe Beach will be able to create a blueprint for what long-term recovery looks like in their community,” said Florida Commerce Sec. J. Alex Kelly. “Through CPTA, communities have the opportunity to problem solve and better prepare for the future— a critical step in securing sustainable growth and resiliency.”
