“Hurricane recovery is costly for everyone, but it’s particularly burdensome for low-income Americans,” said Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fl, “Some legal disputes, such as FEMA appeals and construction fraud cases can persist for years. Thanks to LSC’s investment in Florida, Bay Area Legal Services and Florida Rural Legal Services will now be enabled to help more Floridians to fully recover from Hurricane Ian.”

The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) has awarded $6.1 million to support the delivery of legal services to low-income Floridians impacted by Hurricanes Ian and Nicole in 2022.

The recipients are Bay Area Legal Services (BALS), Community Legal Services of Mid Florida (CLSMF), Florida Rural Legal Services (FRLS) and Legal Services of North Florida (LSNF). LSC is also awarding CLSMF an additional $252,212 to cover already incurred costs from providing services related to the natural disasters.
