Hurricane Recovery Grants

The City of Daytona Beach is offering recovery grants to qualified business owners affected by hurricanes Ian or Nicole. 

Businesses with less than 50 employees can be reimbursed up to $3,000 for things like the cost of spoiled food, lost revenue, insurance deductibles and repairs.

Awards will be made on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are depleted. 

Funding source for the relief grants: 

  1. Hurricane Ian/Nicole Small Business Recovery Assistance Grant, $500,000 using American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds – For businesses

Grant Requirements and Conditions

  • The grants are available only to businesses located in the city. 
  • Funds are provided for recovery of costs and losses associated with Hurricane Ian and/or Hurricane Nicole.
  • The grant programs are intended to provide for rapid grant award and disbursement of funding. As a condition of receiving a grant, all applicants shall be required to submit proof that they have filed for recovery from their insurance carrier (if insured) and/or FEMA. Where practical, grant funds will be used solely to reimburse those costs that are not reimbursed by insurance (including insurance deductibles). However, where necessary, funds shall be disbursed earlier upon proof of need, provided that the grantee assigns proceeds of insurance to the city.
  • Awards will be made on a first-come, first-served basis until all funds are depleted.
