Recovery from the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew will likely to take weeks and months in counties along Florida’s east coast. FAC has a number of resources to assist counties impacted by the damaging effects of the storm. The Florida Local Government Finance Program (FLGFP) is one solution you can count on. Administered by FAC, FLGFP provides flexible, low-interest, short- to medium-term loans backed by tax exempt commercial paper. The program was created by a group of Florida counties 25 years ago to help all counties. Counties can use the program to finance everything from beach renourishment to large-scale facility restoration and infrastructure needs. To date, the program has helped more than 50 local governments build (and re-build) strong communities statewide.
