Florida Ecological Greenways Network (FEGN)

The FEGN is a key component of the evaluative criteria for Florida Forever land acquisitions. In April 2021, the Florida Legislature unanimously passed the Florida Wildlife Corridor Act which was signed into law in July 2021. The Florida Wildlife Corridor is comprised of critical habitat linkages that are defined as Priority 1, Priority 2 or Priority 3 areas within the FEGN.

Florida Forever Application and Process Overview

The first step to getting a new project or boundary amendment approved and eligible for acquisition is by submitting an application. Complete applications submitted to the Division of State Lands (DSL) are reviewed by staff and prepared for vote by the Acquisition and Restoration Council (ARC).

ARC develops the Florida Forever Priority List and therefore determine which lands are eligible for acquisition. If a project is put on the Florida Forever Priority List, it becomes eligible for acquisition by the state of Florida.
