Nearly $150 million given to Florida communities to make resilient infrastructures

LAKELAND, Fla. – Nearly $150 million was awarded to some Florida communities to help make more resilient infrastructures.

Two local communities, DeSoto County and the City of Arcadia, will receive a portion of the award, according to Governor Ron DeSantis.

The City of Arcadia will receive $4,823,579 to widen a stormwater tributary to provide additional storage to control flood volume. The governor’s office also confirmed DeSoto County will receive a total of $7,030, 587. This will go towards replacing a decaying drain system infrastructure and repairing a bridge used as an evacuation route during storms.

Governor Ron DeSantis made the announcement Friday during a news conference with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Executive Director Dane Eagle.

The money was awarded through the DEO’s Rebuild Florida Mitigation General Infrastructure Program, according to the governor’s office. The program allows local governments to develop large-scale infrastructure projects to make communities more resilient to future disasters.

Avon Park, Doral, Fort Lauderdale, Key West, Lakeland, Lauderhill, Miami, North Miami Beach, Orlando, Sebring, and West Palm Beach city governments will also receive an award from the DEO. Governor DeSantis also said Broward and Osceola counties will receive a portion as well.
