The federal money can be used for debris removal; emergency protective measures; and the repair, replacement, or restoration of disaster-damaged facilities such as roads, buildings, and utilities. 

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, D-St. Petersburg, announced Largo will receive a $1 million grant for damage caused by Hurricane Irma.

The grant, from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, will reimburse the city for costs related to clean-up from the 2017 hurricane. Appropriated by Congress, this funding can be used for debris removal; emergency protective measures; and the repair, replacement, or restoration of disaster-damaged facilities such as roads, buildings, and utilities.

“Though we were lucky enough to avoid a direct hit, many Pinellas county residents were still significantly impacted by Hurricane Irma, losing power, property, and millions of dollars in revenue,” Crist said. “This grant goes a long way towards helping the city of Largo and its residents recover from the damage caused by this disaster.”

Crist represents Florida’s 13th Congressional District, which includes south and mid-Pinellas County.
