Connecticut Wetland Mitigation In Lieu Fee Program Grant

The National Audubon Society, Inc., through its state office, Audubon Connecticut, is the “sponsor” of a Connecticut “In Lieu Fee” (ILF) program. The program allows permittees to pay a fee in lieu of taking on mitigation themselves. Instead, local organizations like land trusts, and other environmental nonprofits, are given the opportunity to apply for and receive grant funding for the preservation, restoration, and enhancement of wetland and watercourse resources and associated upland buffers in the State of Connecticut.

Additional Information:
Restoration and enhancement projects are strongly encouraged and will likely score and rank higher than preservation projects. For restoration and enhancement projects, consultation with qualified professionals is recommended.
