Rebuild Florida Infrastructure Repair Program

The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity's (DEO) Rebuild Florida Infrastructure Repair Program was launched with $85,819,653 to fund infrastructure restoration and improvement projects in communities impacted by Hurricane Irma. The funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program to address unmet disaster recovery needs related to damage from Hurricane Irma. Eligible counties, municipalities, water management districts and water authorities located in the areas that experienced Hurricane Irma storm damage, as shown here, are eligible to apply for funding.     

Application Deadline Extended to October 31 Due to Hurricane Dorian

On August 29, the Department of Economic Opportunity announced that, in order to allow communities to be fully focused on preparedness efforts ahead of Hurricane Dorian, the deadline to apply for the Rebuild Florida Infrastructure Repair Program has been extended to October 31, 2019.

Please Note:

Local governments that have already submitted applications will be allowed to amend and resubmit their applications for funding.
