Grants to Florida businesses in eligible counties to compensate for natural disaster damage. Funding is intended to assist timber producers who suffered timber damage and devastation as a result of recent hurricanes. Grants will offer compensation for crop loss in the wake of Hurricane Michael. Eligible applicants must own or lease land in Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Hamilton, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Okaloosa, Suwannee, Taylor, Wakulla, Walton, and Washington counties.
In order to manage the large volume of eligible producers and to ensure that producers with the highest level of damage receive payment first, applications will be processed based on where the timberland is located within the various damage zones identified by the Florida Forest Service. Producers with timberland located in areas designated as Catastrophic or Severe (identified in red and orange on the map in Grant Coverage Areas below) will receive priority over producers located in the moderate areas.
