The federal government allocated $650 billion to be distributed to local governments around the country to assist with public health responses; addressing negative economic impacts; replacing public sector revenue loss; premium pay for our essential workers and to invest in water, sewer or broadband infrastructure projects.  All local governments have a deadline of Dec. 31, 2026 to expend these funds.

St. Lucie County plans to invest $52.2 million in capital projects that fall under the water, sewer or broadband infrastructure category; $6.1 million to support the public health response and $2.4 million to address negative economic impacts caused by the pandemic. Roughly, $34.1 million of the $52.2 million in infrastructure will be used to expand water and sewer lines in the Lakewood Park and Midway Road areas of the county; while $17.8 million will be used to collect and treat stormwater countywide. These infrastructure projects focus on reducing flooding, improving water quality in the Indian River Lagoon and St. Lucie Estuary, as well as spurring economic development.
