FEMA Approves $1.1M for Dunes Community Development District in Flagler County

LAKE MARY, Fla. – FEMA has approved $1,180,207 in grant funding to reimburse Dunes Community Development District for water main relocation expenses after Hurricane Nicole. 

The storm caused extensive damage to a critical transmission water main. This funding will install a water main in a new location away from the shoreline. 

FEMA’s Public Assistance program provides grants to state, local, territorial and tribal governments, and certain private nonprofit organizations, including houses of worship, so communities can quickly respond to and recover from major disasters or emergencies. 

Applicants work with FEMA to develop projects and scopes of work. FEMA obligates funding for projects to the Florida Division of Emergency Management after final approval. Once a project is obligated, FDEM works closely with applicants to complete the grant process and begin making payments. FDEM has procedures in place designed to ensure grant funding is provided to local communities as quickly as possible.
