President Biden Approves Federal Disaster Declaration Allowing Broward Flood Victims to Apply for Much Needed Relief Funding

On Friday, President Biden approved federal disaster assistance for Broward County after the historic flooding that hit communities from April 12th-April 14th. The declaration, which was requested by Gov. DeSantis, will provide federal dollars to individuals that were affected by the flooding, tornadoes and severe storms.

The assistance includes grants for temporary housing, home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses and other programs set to assist business owners and individuals recover from disaster impacts.

Federal funding is also available to state and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the flooding.

Lastly, funds will also be made available for hazard mitigation measures statewide.

Residents and business owners who are eligible for federal disaster assistance can register online at DisasterAssistance.gov or call 800-621-3362.
