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.     

The Application Period for the Rebuild Florida Infrastructure Repair Program Ended on October 31, 2019

DEO will now review the submitted applications and evaluate projects based on the criteria outlined in the Infrastructure Repair Program Guidebook.
