TBRPC & DEO Team-Up to Hold a Regional Workshop

On October 31st, 2019, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) held a regional public workshop at the TBRPC to seek input for the use of more than $633 million in first-of-its-kind federal funding for mitigation projects in communities affected by hurricanes Hermine, Matthew or Irma. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is providing funding through the newly created Community Development Block Grant – Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) program.

DEO is leading the state’s efforts to create the federally required State Action Plan that will provide a high-level strategy for how the funding will be used to address the disaster mitigation needs of eligible communities. The State Action Plan will be developed in partnership with state agencies that are working on resiliency efforts and will include input from Regional Planning Councils, local communities, and stakeholders to help DEO determine Florida’s most critical disaster mitigation needs.
