Published on November 01, 2019


(Miami, FL November 1, 2019) - This week, the City of Miami secured a $7.3 million check from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which reimburses the City for funds that it expended in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma in 2017. Florida Emergency Management Director Jared Moskowitz was instrumental in securing the reimbursement for the City and transmitted the check to the City of Miami following a meeting with Miami City Manager Emilio T. Gonzalez last week in Tallahassee.

"I'm grateful to Director Moskowitz for his significant assistance in recouping these funds for the City of Miami and for expediting the payment," said City Manager Gonzalez. "These monies will go towards the major debris removal operations the City undertook following Hurricane Irma. We will continue to work closely with Director Moskowitz, as well as our federal partners, to recover outstanding reimbursement dollars."
