Florida is currently the 3rd largest state in the nation, with approximately 1,100 new people move to Florida EACH DAY. As Florida continues to grow, both in GDP and population, so do new challenges and opportunities. The Florida Chamber Foundation’s Florida 2030 research states that by 2030, nearly 1 out of every 4 Floridians could be over the age of 65.
