SFWMD approves cooperative funding for stormwater, water conservation and supply

Staff report

In February, the South Florida Water Management District Governing Board approved a $9 million one-time cooperative funding program as a way to support local stormwater management, alternative water supply and water conservation projects.

The program combines our existing cost-share efforts into a single, streamlined application process.

With contracts scheduled to be awarded in October, they are seeking eligible projects throughout the district’s 16 counties that are proposed for construction/implementation from Oct. 1, 2016, through Sept. 30, 2018.

Their goal is to identify projects that are construction-ready or ready-to-implement conservation technology programs that can provide the most immediate benefits. To achieve this, the application process started Tuesday, March 22, and will close Friday, May 20, 2016, at 6 p.m.
