CDBG Comment.png

The State of Florida is preparing a plan to spend $616 million in federal recovery funds to benefit low and moderate income Floridians impacted by Hurricane Irma. This is our chance to help shape recovery plans and ensure that low income communities and communities of color are not displaced as a result of Hurricane Irma or the rebuilding process.

Community groups, legal advocates and everyday Floridians participated in the public comment period. Here are some of the comment letters:
