CDBG-DR Hometown Revitalization Grant Program
The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity has allocated $60 million in Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding to support the revitalization of commercial areas that were impacted by Hurricane Michael. Jackson County is applying through a competitive process for a portion of these funds to make improvements to a defined commercial corridor impacted by Hurricane Michael. This funding can be used to make repairs to privately-owned commercial structures to help revitalize the community. The submission of an application to the State of Florida by Jackson County does not guarantee that we will receive these funds.
Jackson County will focus its grant application in the triangle intersection area of Highways 90 and 71 in the unincorporated area. Businesses located along these roads and within this defined boundary shown on the map below are encouraged to contact us to discuss their repair and improvement needs. This area was selected as it met the grant criteria for commercial corridors and needs revitalization after Hurricane Michael. Other municipalities within Jackson County may be submitting additional applications for commercial areas within their jurisdiction.
