Florida

The state of Florida received $166 million from the Environmental Mitigation Trust. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection was designated as the Florida State Beneficiary and is responsible for writing the State Mitigation Plan.  The FDEP sought public input to develop the Mitigation Plan through Requests for Information (RFI), a public survey, five in-person public informational meetings, two informational webinars, and a public comment period. On July 17, 2019, the FDEP released a draft Mitigation Plan for public comment. 

Plan Summary

Primary Goal: to reduce emissions of NOx, particle matter, and hazardous air pollutants in areas where people live, work, and visit.

  • Prioritize projects that replace eligible units with electric-powered and/or alternative fueled units
  • Identify the areas in Florida where the largest number of people are impacted by higher levels of emissions from diesel-powered vehicle and equipment
  • Identify mitigation projects that achieve lowest cost per ton of pollutants reduced
