The Resilient Florida Program includes a selection of grants that are available to counties, municipalities, water management districts, flood control districts and regional resilience entities. To effectively address the impacts of flooding and sea level rise that the state faces, eligible applicants may receive funding assistance to analyze and plan for vulnerabilities, as well as implement projects for adaptation and mitigation. 

Please refer to section 380.093, F.S., for more information on the eligible project and grant types and the requirements to apply.

Applications submitted for funding consideration require a comprehensive evaluation to ensure that funds are allocated timely and appropriately and pursuant to Florida Statute. Additional funding awards will be provided when it becomes available.

Sign up for general grant updates through the Protecting Florida Together grant portal.
