FEMA Funding for Jacksonville Beach Renourishment Project

FEMA has approved $1.7 million for the State of Florida to help the City of Jacksonville defray the costs of rebuilding dunes on city beaches damaged by Hurricane Irma under FEMA’s Public Assistance Program.

FEMA funds will reimburse the city for the cost of rebuilding dunes along a seven-and-a-half mile stretch of beach using 56,280 cubic yards of new sand.

Wave action caused by Irma largely wiped out dunes and plants that had been installed only months earlier to repair damage done by Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

All of the dune work will be done in conjunction with a beach re-nourishment project already planned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

FEMA’s Public Assistance grant program is an essential source of funding for communities recovering from a federally declared disaster or emergency.

Applicants work directly with FEMA to develop project worksheets and scopes of work. Following approvals by FEMA and the Florida Division of Emergency Management, FEMA obligates funding for the project.
