The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded $8.7 million in Rapid Unsheltered Survivor Housing (RUSH) funding to the state of Florida and six localities impacted by Hurricane Ian to help prevent or address homelessness.

The funding can be used to support people experiencing homelessness in an emergency shelter, transitional housing, or place not meant for human habitation as well as people at risk of homelessness. It is intended to serve people who have not had their needs fully met by other federal disaster relief.

This is the second allocation of RUSH funding awarded to help Florida recover from Hurricane Ian. The first round of funding, awarded in October 2022, was $6.8 million.
