Love Your Lake Program


FLMS has created a cost-share program that funds lake, pond and shoreline projects demonstrating management techniques that help protect, preserve and restore Florida’s aquatic resources. Each year FLMS solicits grant proposals describing successful management projects. FLMS will provide matching funds for expenses incurred by the selected applicant. Expenditures may be in the form of labor or monetary contributions utilized in the program. Proposals are reviewed by a selection committee based on the following criteria:

  • Monetary or labor match — programs encouraging community involvement are strongly recommended.
  • Location — project must be accessible to the public (may include large communities or neighborhoods - dependent on accessibility).
  • Signage — educational component explaining project.
  • Water quality enhancements — examples include Florida-friendly landscaping, environmental berm and swale, and other innovative erosion control techniques.
