TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WPEC) — Some coastal communities impacted by Hurricane Ian and Hurricane Nicole are getting relief thanks to the Hurricane Stormwater and Wastewater Assistance Grant program.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced $100 million in funding for local governments that operate a stormwater or wastewater management system that were impacted by the storms.
