TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCJB) – Governor Ron DeSantis announced $20 million in grants to help communities across the state, including North Central Florida, mitigate flooding on Tuesday.

He made the announcement of the funding for 98 projects at a news conference in Fort Myers Beach.

″We are a disaster-prone state, a low lying state, people in our coastal communities, in particular, have to deal with flood risk and so how do you fortify Florida to be able to withstand that so the Resilient Florida Program is really about investing significant money in consultation, and collaboration with local communities, Governor DeSantis said.”
