Jupiter Island, a well-heeled seaside enclave where home values average $4.97 million, was awarded $8.6 million in federal emergency money for beach re-nourishment following a beating by 2016’s Hurricane Matthew.

The town, whose celebrity residents include golfer Tiger Woods, applied for the money as part of FEMA’s Public Assistance Grant Program, which reimburses communities for repairs to public facilities, debris removal and emergency support in relation to incidents such as hurricanes.
