Hurricane Irma engulfed the Florida peninsula on September 10, 2017.  Florida’s housing stock was heavily damaged, catastrophically in some areas.  Housing providers immediately got to work rebuilding but there were lessons to be learned from Hurricane Irma, just as there were from previous disasters.  In this session, we will discuss those lessons with a panel ready to share how their severely impacted and distressed community began the long road to recovery.  Learn how the state is managing its more than $1 Billion CDBG-DR grant program fortified with close to $1 billion in FEMA funding for hazard mitigation and resilience.  Join us and bring your questions about how Florida stands up to major storms and how you can be prepared for the next and inevitable hurricane warning.
