Resilient Florida Program - SLIP

Sea Level Impact Projection (SLIP) Study

Section 161.551, Florida Statutes, requires state agencies, municipalities, counties, special districts, authorities or other corporate bodies of the state that commission or manage a construction project within the coastal building zone using funds appropriated from the state to conduct a sea-level impact projection (“SLIP”) study.

The SLIP study must be conducted, submitted to the department and published on the department’s website before construction can commence. The department will maintain a copy of all SLIP studies on this website for 10 years after receipt.

The department has adopted Chapter 62S-7, Florida Administrative Code, which implements section 161.551 and provides for the requirements for state financed constructors, SLIP study standards, and the implementation and enforcement of SLIP study requirements.

The SLIP tool is now available to help you complete SLIP studies quickly, easily and at no cost. There are many resources and references on the SLIP tool website that will help you learn how to use the tool to better understand sea level rise and flooding risks.

To use the SLIP tool to produce and submit a SLIP study, your local government must request a secure account.

Please email Resilience@FloridaDEP.gov to make your request. One account per local government will be established at this time. It is the account holder’s responsibility to ensure the security of the local government’s log in credentials. Accounts will be established within one week of submitting the request.
