$40 Million Available in Partnership Funding for Alternative Water Supply and Water Conservation Projects
Aug. 9, 2019
This is a reminder that application process for cost-share projects will close next Friday, August 16, 2019.
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) is excited to announce it is accepting applications for cost-share projects to develop alternative water supply projects and water conservation projects. This process is part of the State of Florida's efforts to identify and implement cost-effective strategies to protect the state's 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.
Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Florida Legislature approved $40 million in funding statewide for developing water supply and water resource development projects, and SFWMD is requesting applications on behalf of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for funding consideration for alternative water supply (AWS) and water conservation projects within the District's 16-county service area.
