WCIND Grant Program


The West Coast Inland Navigation District, or WCIND, is a multi-county special taxing authority encompassing Charlotte, Lee, Manatee, and Sarasota counties. Established by the Florida Legislature in 1947 to complement the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers with the construction and maintenance of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, or ICW. The District’s mission is to preserve and enhance the commercial, recreational, and ecological values of local waterways.

Grant applications should be submitted by the end of February 2018, for consideration.
