Jackson County Schools and the City of Marianna each receive $1 million in federal funding
On Thursday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced more than $20 million in funding was approved for northwest Florida communities from the Hurricane Michael State Recovery Grant Program.
The grant is helping with issues not covered by available federal funding, like FEMA reimbursement, and not covered by insurance.
The Governor’s office named Jackson County Schools as a recipient of $1 million in funds.
The City of Marianna was also approved for $1 million, “to replace revenue loss as a result of the closure of the Marianna Federal Corrections Institute, the closure of a water bottling facility and the loss of residents.”
