Exactly one year after Hurricane Michael ripped apart much of Florida's Panhandle, relief continues to pour in for parts of Northwest Florida still recovering from the destruction.

On Thursday, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a $28 million investment for Northwest Florida, one year after the powerful Category 5 hurricane made landfall. DeSantis is awarding nearly $3 million to Panama City through the Florida Job Growth Grant Fund and requesting $25 million from the Florida Legislature to fund the Hurricane Michael State Recovery Grant Program for the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
