Block Grant - Disaster Recovery

Pasco County was awarded $2,455,858 from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (FDEO) for the acquisition and relocation of low- to moderate-income households in the Elfers Parkway Area through the Voluntary Homeowner Occupied Buyout Program of the Elfers Area under the Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) related to Hurricane Hermine. Assistance will be provided in the form of acquisition of current owner-occupied properties at pre-Hermine value and a down payment assistance grant of up to $25,000 for purchase of a new property within Pasco County. CDBG-DR funds are eligible for unmet needs only and cannot be used where a duplication of benefit may occur. FEMA funds, insurance funds, and other assistance will be considered in any request/award for assistance using CDBG-DR funds.

Pasco County has entered into an agreement with FDEO (Agreement Number HM006) to administer disaster recovery funds.
