The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the state of Florida would receive $633,485,000 for mitigation activities in Florida communities that experienced major declared disaster events during 2016 and 2017. This funding will help ensure that Florida's communities not only recover from previous disasters, but are prepared to weather future storms.

While HUD has not yet published required guidance to release the announced $633 million in mitigation funding, DEO is currently working to develop the federally required State Action Plan. A critical component of this plan is stakeholder input, and DEO has created an online survey to generate feedback on the priorities and needs for mitigation measures in communities across Florida.

We value the input of stakeholders from all Florida communities and invite you to participate.
