Mitigation Program

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the state of Florida would receive $549,684,000 for mitigation activities for major declared disaster events in Florida during 2015, 2016 and 2017. Mitigation can broadly be described as actions taken to protect communities from the predictable damage from future events. 

The DEO Office of Disaster Recovery, the governor-designated state authority responsible for administering all HUD Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery funds awarded to the state, is currently working to develop the federally required State Mitigation Action Plan that outlines what types of activities will be funded, who will receive those funds and how much funding will be made available to each locality for each activity.
