More than $3.5 million has been awarded to Clay County for targeted infrastructure improvements.

“The strategic investments made today will ensure that Clay County can continue to grow and thrive at record pace,” said Secretary of Commerce J. Alex Kelly. “Thanks to Governor DeSantis’ support, this project builds on past investments in Clay County that create meaningful career opportunities for generations of Floridians and strengthen our state’s economy.”

Funding will go towards infrastructure support in Clay County with the construction of a new half-mile section collector road, Pringle Road, and enhancements to a quarter-mile section arterial road, County Road 218.

Since 2019, $142 million has been awarded through the Job Growth Grant Fund, making strategic investments in programs that build stronger communities and support workforce training across the state. The Florida Job Growth Grant Fund is an economic development program designed to promote public infrastructure and workforce training across the state. Proposals are reviewed by FloridaCommerce and are chosen by Governor DeSantis to meet the demands for workforce training or infrastructure needs in communities around the state.
