Multi Year Implementation Plan
The RESTORE Act and the U.S. Treasury final rule directs the state, county, and parish applicants to prepare multiyear implementation plans (MYIP) that prioritize eligible activities for direct component funds and to obtain broad-based participation from individuals, businesses, Indian tribes, and non-profit organizations as part of the plans. The state, county, or parish applicants may periodically update their plans by following the same steps, including obtaining public input, prior to submitting their revised plans to the U.S. Treasury. All versions of the MYIP are available under quick links.
On July 11, 2019, the Santa Rosa County Board of County Commissioners approved amending the Initial MYIP which was first accepted by the U.S. Treasury in May 2017 that included 14 projects. The first amendment became necessary due to viability, cost increases, scope, and material modifications of projects. No new projects were included. The U.S. Treasury accepted Amendment #1 in September 2019 in which 10 projects remained.
On September 23, 2019 the Board commenced the process of developing the second amendment of the MYIP to include new projects. The Local RESTORE Council (LRC), consisting of 11 appointed members, was engaged to evaluate and recommend projects to the Board of County Commissioners that met the RESTORE criteria, are legacy projects, and leverages funding. The draft Amendment #2 Multiyear Implementation plan is now available for a 45-day public comment and review. Comments are to be received no later than September 15 at 4:30 pm.
