The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) administers a funding program to help local governments implement best management practices when developing stormwater treatment facilities. Projects eligible for these TMDL Water Quality Restoration Grant funds are those designed to reduce pollutant loads to impaired waters from urban stormwater runoff. Since so many of Florida’s receiving water bodies are now considered impaired waters by the State, many stormwater treatment projects qualify to be eligible for the funding.
The grant applications may be submitted at any time throughout the year and are reviewed and ranked in March, July, and November annually. Projects are selected for grant funding based on these rankings and the availability of funding. Projects not selected for funding will remain in the pool of projects that will be ranked for one year from the date of submittal.
Our team has successfully assisted local governments in attaining hundreds of thousands of dollars in TMDL grant funds. We can help you get your project in position for funding by providing all the services needed including project management, grant application, design, permitting and monitoring.
