Boca Raton will receive $2.6 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to defray the costs of cleaning up after Hurricane Irma.
The money will reimburse the city for collection and disposal of debris, FEMA said in a Dec. 23 release.
The city collected more than 350,000 cubic yards of vegetative debris from roads and public and private property, FEMA said.
The money is from FEMA’s Public Assistance grant program, which helps communities recover from a federally declared disaster or emergency.
Irma struck the state on Sept. 10, 2017, making landfall in the Florida Keys as a Category 4 hurricane.
