DWRA’s Water Quality and Supply Program is responsible for managing Alternative Water Supply (AWS) projects that are selected by DEP’s Office of Water Policy and Ecosystems Restoration; and developing and managing grant agreements resulting from line item appropriations (legislative appropriations) in each year’s Florida General Appropriations Act (GAA).
The Water Quality and Supply Program also develops and manages grant agreements resulting from line item appropriations (legislative appropriations) in each year’s Florida General Appropriations Act (GAA).
Each year, the Florida Legislature may solicit applications (from governmental entities) directly for “Community Budget Issue Request” projects, including water projects, in anticipation of upcoming legislative sessions. This process is an opportunity to secure legislative sponsorship of project funding through the state budget. Members of the public can contact their local legislative delegation to determine whether there are opportunities available to fund projects in a specific area. Information on contacting Senators and Representatives is available at http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Welcome/.
