~ Fiscal Year 2021-22 Project Proposals Are Being Accepted for Review ~
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Nonpoint Source Management Program is seeking participants for Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) projects. Green infrastructure reduces and treats stormwater at its source while delivering environmental, social and economic benefits. Examples of GSI projects include vegetated bioswales (more than conveyance grass swales), bioretention cells, tree boxes, pervious pavement, green walls and green roofs.
Grant amounts may vary on a case-by-case basis for planning, construction and coordination depending on project type or size. Please contact Emily Brown if you would like to discuss project size and/or cost prior to submitting a proposal.
To be eligible, project participants must:
- Have a suitable location for a GSI project.
- Be able to complete the construction of the project through a cost reimbursement grant.
- Be able to work with the department throughout the project (from design to monitoring) to ensure that meaningful data is collected as a representative Florida GSI case study.
The deadline to apply is April 2, 2021. Learn more about GSI projects and submission requirements.
