Never Forgotten Coast Announces Grant Awards for Mexico Beach
According to FLAPOL, Never Forgotten Coast will be awarding grants of $1,000 to those still suffering from the effects of Hurricane Michael in Mexico Beach. The grants will be given to 11 local businesses.
Most of the businesses will use the grants to replace items not covered by their insurance company.
“Businesses in Mexico Beach are starting to get up and running again, and we’re excited to see how these grants will help that recovery continue,” said Alex Workman, Never Forgotten Coast co-founder. “The road to recovery is long but they are making incredible strides, and we are honored to continue to help share their stories and partner with them to keep rebuilding.”
The grant program is part of a partnership between Never Forgotten Coast and the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Association, nonprofit that has worked in Mexico Beach for more than two decades and has successfully managed millions of dollars in federal grant programs.
So far 20 microgrants have been given, including the 11 grants announced Monday. Grant applications are still open for businesses that could get some help to open again.
