Advanced Cleanup Program (AC)

The Advanced Cleanup Program (AC) was created to provide an opportunity for site rehabilitation to be conducted on a limited basis in advance of the site's priority ranking at sites eligible for restoration funding under the Early Detection Incentive Program, Abandoned Tank Restoration Program, Petroleum Liability and Restoration Insurance Program or the Petroleum Cleanup Participation Program. Since then, changes were made to Section 376.30713, Florida Statutes, and the department may now approve applications for AC at eligible sites notwithstanding the site's priority ranking established pursuant to s. 376.3071(5)(a).

There are three (3) types of sites covered under the Advanced Cleanup Program:  Individual AC sites, Performance Based Advanced Cleanup (PBAC) bundle sites, and Advanced Cleanup for Redevelopment (ACR) sites. 

The department may have an AC Application period (AC individual sites and PBAC bundle sites) between May 1 and June 30 and between November 1 and December 31 of each fiscal year. The opening of an AC Application period is announced on the Petroleum Restoration Program's webpage and in the Florida Administrative Register.  Advanced Cleanup Redevelopment (ACR) site applications are open year round.

Only the real property owner or person responsible for site rehabilitation qualifies as an applicant. Applications may be submitted for individual sites or for the aggregate cleanup of five or more sites. Information regarding required components of both individual or bundled applications and the nonrefundable review fee may be found in the documents listed below.

Questions and comments should be directed as follows:

Individual AC sites - Questions or comments regarding these sites can be referred to Matthew Ingham, AC program coordinator, at 850-245-8964 or Matthew.Ingham@FloridaDEP.gov

PBAC & ACR sites - Questions regarding these sites should be directed to Dona Milinkovich, PBC program coordinator, at 850-245-8872 or Dona.Milinkovich@floridadep.gov.
