Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) Projects
Facilities located along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway have the chance of being awarded funding with Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) monies. This is in partnership with the CVA Program, where 75% of the grant award is funded with both CVA funds and FIND funds. These projects are required to give accreditation to both the CVA Program as well as FIND on their information building placard.
