Florida Hurricane Relief Fund
Together we will rise and rebuild
With Floridians still recovering from the 2004 hurricane season -- and new hurricanes hitting the state in this 2005 season -- insurance, government and relief organizations are not equipped to cover all of the needs of Floridians impacted by these storms. Florida Governor Jeb Bush has established the Florida Hurricane Relief Fund to meet the growing recovery needs of Floridians impacted by these devastating storms.
The mission of the Florida Hurricane Relief Fund is to raise funds to help Floridians with recovery through strengthening families and rebuilding communities.
Goals of the Relief Fund
MAKE RECOVERY DOLLARS STRETCH – by providing needed financial assistance where insurance and government help leaves off
Key recovery assistance will help Floridians and their communities. Funds may be used to help rebuild roofs, repair homes, provide child care assistance, assist nonprofits to rebuild, and much more.
