Monroe County, Florida: $3.73 million
As the threat of floodwaters reaching living areas rises, Monroe County, Florida, will take steps to elevate 19 single-family homes throughout the Florida Keys. The living areas within these structures will be elevated using piers and concrete footings to at least three feet above the Base Flood Elevation, or to the elevation set by the local floodplain ordinance, whichever is higher. Any non-habitable areas within these homes will be converted to storage or parking and provide protection against a 100-year storm event.
