The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) is currently accepting applications for cost-share funding for projects that develop alternative water supply (AWS) or implement water conservation. The SFWMD and the State of Florida continue their efforts to identify and implement cost-effective strategies to protect water resources while meeting Florida’s water needs. Partnering with local governments and other entities for implementation of water conservation projects and development of alternative water projects is an important and effective way to help accomplish this goal.
Governor DeSantis requested recurring annual cost-share funding for developing water supply and water resource development projects, and SFWMD is requesting applications for funding consideration for AWS and water conservation projects within the SFWMD’s 16-county service area in anticipation of cost-share funding being appropriated for Fiscal Year 2021-2022.
Eligible projects for consideration should be construction-ready AWS projects or ready-to-implement water conservation technology programs that provide the most immediate benefits. The application process is open now and closes this Friday, February 26 at 4 p.m. Projects may receive up to 50 percent cost-share of eligible project costs. To apply, click here.
Zoom Informational Webinars were offered on January 6th and 20th and the recordings are available on our webpage.
