ORLANDO, Fla. – FEMA has awarded grants totaling $2,675,940 for the State of Florida to reimburse applicants for repairs and administrative costs following Hurricane Irma in 2017. ­ ­

The FEMA Public Assistance program grants include:

  • Archdiocese of Miami: $1,662,880 for repairs to St. Peter Church and surrounding facilities, including the chapel, rectory, community center, pavilion and athletic field.
  • Seminole County: $1,013,060 for administrative costs of tracking and accounting for labor, equipment, materials and other expenses.

The program provides grants to state, tribal and local governments, and certain types of private nonprofit organizations, including some houses of worship, so communities can quickly respond to and recover from major disasters or emergencies. The Florida Division of Emergency Management works with FEMA during all phases of the program and conducts final reviews of FEMA-approved projects.

The federal share for Public Assistance projects is not less than 75 percent of the eligible cost. The state determines how the nonfederal share of the cost of a project (up to 25 percent) is split with subrecipients such as local and county governments.


FEMA’s mission is helping people before, during, and after disasters.
