Background Discussion

Manatee County participates with the State of Florida and the Federal Government to cost share for beach renourishment as the local sponsor for beach renourishment on Anna Maria Island.

Each year, the State of Florida prepares a long-range beach management budget for all eligible and anticipated projects along the state coastline.  As part of the application process, a current and updated resolution is required for the eligible government entity, which includes statements of their support of the project, willingness to  serve as the local sponsor, and a statement of the extent of their ability and willingness to provide the necessary local funding to implement the project.  In addition, the resolution identifies the source of the matching funds as the Tourist Development Tax.

This information, along with the other application materials currently being prepared by the County's consultant Aptim (formerly CB&I), is used by the State to prioritize and rank projects for funding.  Manatee County has been successful in the past in securing funding to match local expenditures from the dedicated One Cent Tourist Development Tax.  State competition for funding remains high as Federal and State matching funds may be reduced in the future due to other national and state priorities.

Attached as informational items are the copies of the 2018-2019 application.
