Funding for Best Management Practices to Meet TMDLs
Three times a year (March, July and November) funding is awarded for the implementation of best management practices (BMPs) designed to reduce pollutant loads to impaired waters from urban stormwater discharges. This funding is administered by the Department through the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Water Quality Restoration Grant, which is set out by rule in Chapter 62-305, F.A.C. and authorized by Section 403.890(2), F.S.
Application(s) can actually be submitted at any time to the Department. However, they are not reviewed until the next review date (March, July or November). More than one project application may be submitted at a time. Please note that there is a TMDL Supplemental Information Page that will also need to be completed and submitted with each project application. Also note, the grant awards from the November review period have not yet been chosen. If your project is not selected it will be reconsidered for the March review period.
Applications and their corresponding Supplemental Information Pages can be submitted electronically via e-mail to Katherine.Britt@dep.state.fl.us
