After Ian Paid $437M in Homeowner Assistance Relief, Florida DEO Secretary Says

Tallahassee, Fla. — Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Secretary Dan Eagle said nearly 25,000 Florida residents have received financial assistance from the Homeowner Assistance Fund so far — $437 million — topping “California, Pennsylvania and Texas combined” as the state swaths of Hurricane Ian continue to recover.

In a phone call with News 6, Eagle said that applications are still being reviewed on a case-by-case basis and will be paid until the funding “runs out.”

Eagle was also pleased with Florida’s unemployment numbers, compared to the latest national figure of 3.7%.

While the state’s October figure will not be released for the next 2 weeks, Eagle said the September unemployment figure of 2.5% is the second lowest in history and should be slightly higher after Hurricane Ian.

“We are facing a rapid recession and while other states are still recovering, we have recovered,” Eagle said. “We don’t know the future, but we’re doing better than any of the 10 biggest states.”

Eagle said his message to the Florida Council of 100 is to promote job creation.

“Many parts of the state, including South Florida, are still recovering (from Hurricane Ian) … the more businesses reopen, the more workers have a chance to recover,” he said.
