Resilient Florida 

Grant Opportunities


The Resilient Florida Programs offer a variety of funding opportunities to assist eligible entities in assessing the risks of, planning for, and adapting to flooding and sea level rise under s. 380.093, F.S. This includes analysis of vulnerabilities and risks, and the development of plans and policies so that communities can identify and prepare for the aforementioned risks. Building off these informed planning efforts, eligible recipients can propose projects that address risks from flooding and sea level rise so that community resources and assets are more resilient to these hazards.
