Upcoming Funding Frameworks with New States

Florida commits $1.1 million in recurring funds to the economic partnership with Israel

This year's budget includes authorization for Space Florida to enter into a Florida-Israel Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) Agreement with the State of Israel to support collaborative industrial research, development and commercialization of projects related to aerospace and other technology and life sciences. The budget will provide $1 million of recurring funds, which will be matched by Israel, to support innovative technologies for the economic benefit of both sides. Both the Florida House of Representatives and the Florida Senate included funding for this agreement in their budgets and Governor Rick Scott approved the funding for the MOU Agreement.
