$63 Million in Additional Funding Announced for Hurricane Michael Relief

Jan 22, 2020

Just a few weeks ago, Governor Ron DeSantis announced over $63 in additional funding for Floridians’ recovery from Hurricane Michael. This bonus has been funded through the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) and includes over $44 million which will go under the Immediate Aid to Restart School Operations Program. That also includes $2.6 million that will assist with postsecondary education, while $6.3 million will go towards Emergency Impact Aid.

Governor DeSantis claims that he is extremely dedicated to rebuilding and helping those Floridians who have been affected by Hurricane Michael. He hopes to assist all of the families, educators, communities and schools recover the best they can.

The additional funding is intended to ensure that there are safe learning environments available to young students in the effected areas. Alongside the USDOE, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) is attempting to help as well- they plan to provide assistance to several counties throughout Florida that have been approved for their K-12 Restart application. The counties include:

  • Bay County
  • Calhoun County
  • Franklin County
  • Gadsden County
  • Gulf County
  • Holmes County
  • Jackson County
  • Jefferson County
  • Liberty County
  • The Florida Agriculture and Mechanic Lab School
  • The Florida State University Lab School
