The City of Boynton Beach will be applying for a grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The Rebuild Florida Mitigation General Infrastructure Program has $475 million available to ensure that the state of Florida is more resilient to future natural disasters.  Eligible Activities include projects that demonstrably increase community resilience.  The following type of infrastructure projects are encouraged: 

  • Restoration of critical infrastructure (such as water and sewer facilities, streets, removal of debris, drainage, bridges, etc.). 
  • Renourishment of protective coastal dune systems and state beaches. 
  • Building or fortifying buildings that are essential to the health, safety and welfare of a community (this can include police stations, fire stations, parks and recreational centers, community and senior centers, hospitals, clinics, schools and educational facilities, other public properties). 
  • Rehabilitation or construction of stormwater management systems. 
  • Improvements to drainage facilities. 
  • Reconstruction of lift stations and sewage treatment plants. 
  • Road repair and improvement and bridge strengthening. 

The City of Boynton Beach will be submitting the following Grant applications on behalf of the City: 

  1. The SE 36th Ave (a.k.a. Gulfstream Blvd) road pavement, from South Seacrest Boulevard east to the FED Railroad tracks, has reached the end of its useful life and is due to be replaced.  The City will be partnering with the City of Delray Beach to apply for funds to rehabilitate 1,900 lineal feet of SE 36th Street (aka Gulfstream Blvd).  The eastbound lane of SE 36th Ave resides in Delray Beach, the westbound lane of SE 36th Ave resides in Boynton Beach, and the median between the lanes of SE 36th Ave is one half (1/2) owned and maintained by each Party. Any funding awarded in the grant will be applied to road rehabilitation and drainage improvements. 
  2. The Bridge on SW 22nd Way, crossing the LWDD E-4 Canal was built in 1953 and has a load limitation that prohibits FPL from accessing the power transfer station with the proper equipment it needs to maintain it’s infrastructure.  The grant will request funding to improve the load bearing capacity or replace the bridge. 
  3. The roads in the City have been under funded due to budget limitations.  The City will request a $2 Million grant to rehabilitate 9.8 miles of roadway.
