Communities impacted by Hurricane Ian last year have been awarded another $338 million for ongoing hurricane repairs and recovery efforts for schools, sheriff’s offices, fire stations, parks and recreation centers, roads, wastewater treatment plants, beach renourishment, and will assist local governments with loss of revenue since the storm.

Funding was announced by Gov. Ron DeSantis recently and will go to:

  • $14 Million to Fort Myers Beach Fire Control District
  • $600,000 to the City of Fort Myers
  • $4.3 Million to Lee Memorial Health Systems
  • $51 Million to Lee County School Board

  • $28 Million to the City of Sanibel
  • $51 Million to the City of Cape Coral
  • $1 Million to Captiva Erosion Prevention District

The Hurricane Recovery Program was established in the Framework for Freedom Budget to assist with gaps in hurricane repairs and recovery efforts to schools, sheriff’s offices, fire stations, parks and recreation centers, roads, wastewater treatment plants, beach renourishment, and much more. Funds can also be requested to assist with loss of revenue due to the impacts of these storms.
