Florida Military Installation Grants

Gov. Rick Scott says $850,000 in grants will be awarded to 11 Florida communities with military installations.
The 2012-2013 Defense Reinvestment Grants are intended to maintain those bases and support efforts to diversify the economies in those communities. Enterprise Florida administers the grant program.
Scott's office said Monday that the military and defense sector has a $60 billion economic impact on the state, providing more than 686,181 jobs.
The counties receiving the grants are: Bay, Brevard, Clay, Duval, Escambia, Okaloosa, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange, Pinellas and Santa Rosa.
