Rebuild Florida Hurricane Irma Infrastructure Repair Program

The Florida Department of Commerce (FloridaCommerce) 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 United States 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 and municipalities located in the areas that experienced Hurricane Irma storm damage, as shown here, are eligible to apply for funding.

On March 28, 2020, an additional $100 million in funding was made available to local governments through a second application cycle. The second application cycle closed on June 30, 2020. On January 22, 2021, awards from the second application cycle were announced for 24 communities.
