Governor Rick Scott announced that the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is providing an additional $3 million in grant funding to assist communities impacted by red tide.

DEP has already committed $750,000 to Manatee County and nearly $100,000 to Sarasota County, as well as:

  • More than $190,000 for Collier County
  • $2 million for Lee County
  • $700,000 for Martin County

Gov. Scott issued an executive order last week, declaring a state of emergency due to impacts of red tide.
