Important Hurricane Michael Update: FEMA Assistance Application Deadline

The deadline to apply for Public Assistance from FEMA has been extended to December 14 in the designated counties (4399-FL). You must follow specific steps on the public assistance website (www.FloridaPA.org) to be eligible to receive FEMA funds. Access a presentation designed to assist you in making that application. You can reasonably expect that the public assistance request process will last at least 6 months (and likely longer) and that any grant monies will not be received for 18 (at a minimum) to 36 months. This estimate is based upon FEMA’s current funding pace with past events, such as Matthew and Irma.

If you encounter difficulties submitting a request for PA, email RPA.help@em.myflorida.com for assistance.

Fifty Years of Home Rule is Worth Commemorating! 

2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Constitutional Home Rule. Florida voters ratified this authority in the 1968 Florida Constitution, giving cities the right to perform municipal functions and deliver services without express permission from the state, except as otherwise provided by law. We're calling on Florida’s cities, towns and villages to pass a resolution celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Home Rule. Download Resolution Template | Learn More
