Grant money Sarasota will receive 

The grant money will help Sarasota, and the county at large, develop a plan as to how to contain the slowly rising water.

The plan is known as a "resilience plan," in which many counties in South Florida have already implemented.

Sarasota County has over 35 miles of beachfront to guard from sinking into the Gulf.
