TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WJHG) -- The Florida Department of Transportation will be getting money from FEMA for Hurricane Michael relief.

FEMA has approved $9,942,926 for the FDOT for the costs of debris removal in Jackson County after Hurricane Michael. FDOT was responsible for the collection, reduction, disposal, and site management of debris in Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty, Wakulla, and Washington Counties.

This project is part of an Expedited Project, which FEMA awards at 50 percent of eligible costs, and the other 50 percent when all paperwork is complete. The first 50 percent of this grant was given in March, bringing the total of this grant to $19,685,852.
