Rebuild Florida Hurricane Ian Hazard Mitigation Grant Match Program

FloridaCommerce announced that over $82 million has been allocated to the Rebuild Florida Hurricane Ian Hazard Mitigation Grant Match Program (HMGMP) to assist local governments eligible for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), administered by the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM), which requires a 25 percent local match. The funds aim to construct, rehabilitate, and expand critical infrastructure to support recovery efforts in communities impacted by Hurricane Ian.

Priority will be given to projects located within fiscally constrained counties (as defined in Section 218.67(1)), Florida Statutes (F.S.). Additionally, rural Units of General Local Governments (UGLGs) (as defined in Section 190.01, F.S.) and state agencies (as defined in Section 120.52, F.S.) are eligible for funding consideration. This funding, in conjunction with FEMA HMGP funds, will allow the awarded UGLGs to execute necessary and significant infrastructure projects that they may not otherwise have the monetary means to complete (i.e., buyouts, structural elevation, localized flood risk reduction, infrastructure retrofitting, and post-disaster code enforcement). Projects must meet both FEMA and HUD requirements to be eligible for HMGMP funding.  If in the future, additional Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds for Hurricane Ian recovery are allocated by HUD to Florida, FloridaCommerce may consider implementing additional infrastructure programs.
