Staff report

The Suwannee River Water Management District will continue receiving applications for the Regional Initiative Valuing Environmental Resources program until 4:00PM on Oct. 31, 2014.

This cost-sharing program is available to governmental entities such as municipalities, water supply authorities and other interested governmental entities with specific projects committed to protecting Florida's water supply, improving water quality, restoring natural systems or providing flood protection.

On Sept. 17, 2014, the district held a technical assistance workshop for all interested parties. Last year's program produced 11 RIVER projects across the district that leveraged nearly $7.3 million in total funding.

Guidelines, policies, and evaluation criteria for applications are available on the district’s website. For more information, contact Patrick Webster at PJW@srwmd.org or (386) 362-1001.
