By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on August 1, 2021

The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners is now accepting applications for their Sewer Connection Incentive Grant Program.

Citrus County Sewer Connection Incentive Grant Program Now Accepting Applications

The Sewer Connection Program provides a reimbursement of up to $4,000 per existing home, to eligible homeowners in a pre-approved FDEP area, to assist with costs incurred to switch from an existing septic system and connect to central sewer.

Completed work must follow all applicable County codes and Florida Health Department (FDOH) requirements. Eligible costs include demolition of the septic tank, plumbing work from the house to the County right-of-way, and the connect of the on-site plumbing to the County’s wastewater collection infrastructure.

A pre-application must be submitted for each eligible home. To receive a copy of the application form, visit https://citrusbocc.smapply.io/prog/sewer_connection_incentive_program or email the Citrus County Water Resources Department at [email protected]. Pre-applications can be submitted online or delivered in-person or by mail to 3600 W Sovereign Path, Lecanto, FL 34461.

Eligible grant awards are on a first‐approved pre-application basis. The pre-application will be assigned a grant number for tracking purposes. If the grant application form is incomplete, the Water Resources Department will contact the applicant by the preferred method chosen by the applicant on the grant pre-application.

The Water Resources Department will notify the homeowner of the eligibility determination. If eligibility is approved, the Water Resources Department remits a Grant Reimbursement Checklist to the homeowner by the preferred method chosen by the applicant. Eligibility approval will hold funding but does not guarantee payment until all requirements are met. If eligibility is denied, the Water Resources Department will notify the homeowner of the determination. Grant applications will be accepted until funds are exhausted or the program deadline of September 30, 2023 has been met.

To learn more, contact the Citrus County Water Resources Department at (352) 527-7650, option #4 or email [email protected]. More information is available online at www.citrusbocc.com/sewerconnection.

Please note that this is a separate program from the Citrus County Septic Upgrade Incentive Program. For more information on that program, call (352) 527-7520 or email [email protected].
