Florida Posts Harmful Algal Bloom Management Grant Information

Submitted by on August 6, 2018 – 11:16 amNo Comment

(Florida Department of Environmental Protection)  On July 9, 2018, Governor Rick Scott issued an Executive Order for Glades, Hendry, Lee, Martin, Okeechobee, Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties to help combat algal blooms (HABs) caused by Lake Okeechobee water discharges from the Army Corps of Engineers. The Executive Order directed DEP to establish a grant program to provide local governments with funding to contract clean-up services.

As directed, DEP has established a grant program to immediately provide targeted algal bloom clean-up efforts to significantly impacted areas, such as marinas, boat ramps and other public access areas located within defined counties to help manage the impacts of Harmful Algal Blooms.
 
Eligible activities include containment, removal, cleanup, elimination, transportation and disposal of and by-products associated with the services provided including algae.
 
Eligible applicants include county governments of Glades, Hendry, Lee, Martin, Okeechobee, Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties. Any other local governments or special districts should coordinate with and submit project proposals to the county governments.
 
Before completing a grant application, all applicants are encouraged to read the Frequently Asked Questions document for clarification of grant eligibility and requirements.
Completed grant applications should be submitted to Amanda Peck at Amanda.Peck@floridadep.gov or 850-245-2952. Questions regarding the grant application process should also be directed to Amanda Peck. 
 
DEP is also committed to continuing to identify and implement new technologies and projects to restore our waterways and prevent harmful algal blooms. Long-term solutions for algal bloom management service are being solicited through an Invitation to Negotiate. More information on this effort can be found here.   READ MORE
