DOT Provides $50 Million in Emergency Funds to Florida

Federal contribution supports infrastructure repairs after Hurricane Ian.

The Federal Highway Administration has made $50 million in emergency funds available to the Florida Department of Transportation to help offset recovery costs in the wake of Hurricane Ian. The category 4 hurricane surged through Florida in early October and was the deadliest hurricane to hit the state since 1935. The funding from the Department of Transportation will help repair 20 critical areas destroyed by the storm.

“Today we’re making available $50 million in emergency funds to help Florida repair roads and bridges after the devastation of Hurricane Ian,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “This important step is only part of a larger federal commitment: as President Biden said, we will be with the people of Florida for as long as it takes to recover and rebuild stronger.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Acting Administrator Stephanie Pollack as she leads the Federal Highway Administration.
  • For Secretary Buttigieg as he oversees the distribution of funding to support infrastructure projects.
  • For Governor DeSantis and other state and local leaders as they continue reconstruction and recovery efforts.
