Deadline Extended To Apply For Restore Act Funds

September 30, 2015

The deadline to apply for RESTORE funds in Escambia County has been extended through Friday.

Due to a scheduling error, the RESTORE Project Portal closed Tuesday, September 29, at 11:59 p.m. The Portal was reopened when the error was realized, and in order to accommodate anyone who may have been affected by this temporary closure, Escambia County has extended the original deadline. The Portal will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, October 2.

No project proposals will be accepted after the portal’s closing date, and submitted projects must do the following:

  • Meet at least one of the eligibility criteria outlined in the federal RESTORE Act (see eligible activities)
  • Include a project budget
  • Address the evaluation criteria which can be found at

The Escambia County RESTORE Advisory Committee will meet Tuesday, October 20, at 4 p.m. in the BCC Chambers, 221 Palafox Place, to discuss the submitted projects and the next step in the process. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
