The Florida Future Fund

To protect Floridians from—and prepare them for—increasingly destructive extreme weather impacts, the The CLEO Institute and Center for American Progress recommend that state leaders create a Florida Future Fund. Through both public and private investment, the fund would provide municipal, county, and regional funding opportunities for flood protections, resiliency, and clean energy and transportation projects. For every $1 invested in building resilient communities and infrastructure, $6 are saved in future climate change-induced costs, including economic disruptions, property damage, public health crises, and deaths caused by extreme weather disasters.
