On December 6, DEO posted an initial draft of the State Action Plan for the $633 million in Community Development Block Grant – Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) funding available to Florida for disasters in 2016 and 2017 on RebuildFlorida.gov for public comment. All Floridians are encouraged to review the State Action Plan. Comments on the State Action Plan may be submitted to DEO until January 20, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. EST.
Development of the State Action Plan involves input from agency partners and local communities. In October, DEO hosted a series of seven community workshops around Florida to educate community members about the program and gather feedback. Resources to learn about the CDBG-MIT program are available on RebuildFlorida.gov
