DeSantis will send $46.9 million in Community Development Block Grant-Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) funds which will be handled by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity’s (DEO) Rebuild Florida program.
Funds cover costs for emergency berms and temporary levees to protect Indian Pass, St. Joseph Peninsula and St. Joe Beach from extensive dune erosion.
The Rural Infrastructure Fund, administered by DEO, provides funding to local governments for infrastructure projects in rural communities to encourage job creation, business investment, and strengthen and diversify rural economies.
The declaration includes public assistance for all categories in Escambia County and public assistance Category B (emergency protective measures) for Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Walton and Washington Counties. The Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) remains in close contact with FEMA to help additional counties receive the declaration for full public assistance.
