Stimulus for Florida Schools

March 31st, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Florida has yet to apply for federal Stimulus money for schools.

The application is expected to arrive this week, and the Governor Charlie Crist says the state is ready to respond quickly. He likened the process to applying to a college.

“You know, our commissioner in Florida is ready to do it, we just need to have the formal application so we can fill it out, Crist said. It’s kind of like getting accepted to college, you have to have the application get in the mail to you, before you can apply. We’re waiting for the application, as soon as it comes we’re ready to send it back.”

Florida is counting on about 2.2 billion for schools. Without the cash, they will face steep cuts.
