Resilient Florida Program


About the Program

On May 12, 2021, Governor Ron DeSantis signed Senate Bill 1954 into law. This comprehensive legislation ensures a coordinated approach to Florida’s coastal and inland resilience.

The program enhances our efforts to protect our inland waterways, coastlines and shores, which serve as invaluable natural defenses against sea level rise. The legislation will yield the largest investment in Florida’s history to prepare communities for the impacts of sea level rise, intensified storms and flooding. 

The Resilient Florida Program includes a selection of grants that are available to counties, municipalities, special districts with specific responsibilities 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.
