Representative Jervonte Edmonds (D – Palm Beach) issued the following statement:
“This is a historical moment, within the few months of being elected I have fought to bring home almost 1 million dollars to help the residents within my district. In particular with one of society’s most important basic needs: water.”
The Initiative for the 2022-2023 General Appropriations Act for Local Support Grant Program is the first of its kind in Florida history. It has given Members of the Florida House an opportunity to support funding for local initiatives.
The requests totaled over $846 million. Out of the 971 requests only 238 were selected amounting to $175 million. We are pleased to announce that the City of Riviera Beach was recently awarded $900,000.00 of grant funding by the Joint Legislative Budget Commission to support the Riviera Beach Lift Station Control Panel Improvements. This improvement project is to provide safe, reliable wastewater collection and treatment services to the residents of and visitors to the City of Riviera Beach.
