Florida Lighthouse Association





Preserving, Restoring, Protecting & Defending Florida's Lighthouse Towers

Approved Grants

The Florida Lighthouse Association has awarded over $700,000 since 2005 to "preserve, restore, protect and defend Florida’s historic lighthouses.” In addition to funding specific projects, FLA grants make it possible for lighthouses to attract matching funds from other sources.
