Over the next decade-plus, $1.5 billion will be directed to Northwest Florida for economic development enhancements. These funds, from a settlement related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, represent an unprecedented opportunity for Northwest Florida.

Triumph Gulf Coast, Inc., a 7-member board of private sector business leaders appointed by state leadership, is in the process of distributing the first $300 million. The eligible uses of this transformative funding stream include grants for workforce development and public infrastructure projects in the 8 disproportionately affected counties - Bay, Escambia, Franklin, Gulf, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Walton, and Wakulla. These funds could be used to:

  • Develop industry-driven workforce training programs
  • Improve STEM-focused educational programs
  • Expand transportation infrastructure serving business corridors
  • Provide infrastructure support for commercial/industrial parks and shovel-ready sites
