First Coast homeowners eligible for storm erosion grants

Florida has begun taking applications for a $50 million program to help share homeowners’ costs for repairing coastal erosion from Tropical Storms Ian and Nicole in areas including Duval, Nassau and St. Johns counties.

The Department of Environmental Protection’s grant program does not pay for home repairs but will split costs for sand placement or coastal armoring that were needed as a result of either hurricane.

The maximum grant for each property, which covers up to half of the costs, is $150,000.
