Funding Programs

The Northwest Florida Water Management District provides or assists in developing funding opportunities for projects that help protect, maintain, or improve water resources. When available, project funding may be awarded to local governments, utilities, agricultural producers, and other entities.

In general, projects of interest must benefit one or more of the District’s core mission areas, including:

  • Water supply: alternative water supply development, water resource development, or water conservation.
  • Water quality: stormwater, wastewater, or other projects that improve water quality and/or provide a reduction in nutrient loading to a waterbody.
  • Natural systems: acquisition and restoration of measurable resource benefits to streams, lakes, wetlands, springs, or aquifers.
  • Flood protection: structural and non-structural flood protection or abatement projects.
