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).

The department may have an AC Application period 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.

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 or additional comments regarding the AC program can be referred to Grant Willis, AC program coordinator, at 850-245-8886 or
