The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity’s (DEO) Rebuild Florida Mitigation Program is now accepting applications and nominations for its Citizen Advisory Committee for Mitigation. Required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Committee will serve as a liaison between the communities and citizens located in state and HUD-designated Most Impacted and Distressed (MID) areas and DEO.
One Representative per region will be appointed to serve on the Committee, with regions based on the Florida Division of Emergency Management’s recovery regions. These regions cover the portions of the state that were impacted by Hurricanes Hermine, Matthew, Irma, and Michael.
The Committee will meet at least biannually and act in an advisory capacity in reviewing and making recommendations to the program regarding mitigation activities including program administration, planning, and operations.
Interested parties may submit applications or nominations to the Committee using the form posted on the Citizen Advisory Committee for Mitigation webpage. Applications and nominations are due on or before May 14, 2021.
More information is available in the Citizen Advisory Committee Guidelines for Mitigation, posted on the webpage. For questions, please contact the Rebuild Florida Mitigation Team at CDBG-MIT@deo.myflorida.com
