Grants to Florida local governments and water management districts to reduce pollutant loads from urban stormwater discharges in impaired waters. Funding will be used to implement best management practices such as stormwater treatment facilities. Funding may be requested for the following types of projects:
-The project reduces stormwater pollutant loadings from urban areas that discharge to waterbodies on the state’s verified list of impaired waters.
-The project is at least at the 60 percent design phase.
-The project is permitted, or the permit has been scheduled for approval at the next meeting of the water management district governing board or department.
-The project includes storm event monitoring to determine the actual load reduction.
-The construction will be completed within three years of appropriation of the funds by the Legislature in order to ensure fund remain available.
-The grant funds are used for construction of best management practices, monitoring to determine pollutant load reductions, or public education activities specifically associated with the project and may only occur after the date of contract. Funds spent in advance of contract may be used for match, such as design, land acquisition and other costs incurred by the applicant.
The criteria for project evaluation and ranking include:
-Impairment status of the receiving water body.
-Estimated load reduction of the pollutants of concern.
-Percentage of local matching funds.
-Cost-effectiveness based on the cost per pound of total nitrogen and/or total phosphorus removed per acre treated.
