From extending the baywalk to establishing mooring areas, Miami is seeking millions in grant funding for water-related projects in a series of applications that city commissioners recently approved to the Florida Inland Navigation District’s Waterways Assistance Program.
The navigation district, known as FIND, is a special state taxing district for the continued management and maintenance of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway.
Most of the grant request represents half the total project cost. For each successful request, the city would allocate the required 50% match. Some of the resolutions authorizing the applications note that a project may be contingent upon future budgeting.
