Florida to receive $84.5 million in federal disaster aid

Florida will receive $84.5 million in new federal aid to help schools recover from Hurricane Irma, and to defray costs associated with reopening campuses, including some that were closed for weeks after the storm.

The aid is part of $2.5 billion allotted to assist schools in areas affected by natural disasters last year, including Florida, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Texas and California. Opportunities for additional aid are forthcoming, according to the Thursday press release from the U.S. Department of Education.
