Sustainable Financing for State and Tribal Wetland Programs: Wetland Regulatory Activity Finance

Share this on Social Media...

As part of the Sustainable Finance for State and Tribal Wetland Programs project, the EFC at UNC investigated how wetland programs pay for their regulatory activities, with a special emphasis on permit fees. Wetland Regulation is one of the four core elements of a wetland program as defined by EPA. The EFC at UNC collected information on 47 state wetland regulatory programs through interviews with state wetland officials, researching permit fee rates on program websites, and investigating state statutes. This research was conducted between August 2010 and October 2011, and all information is current as of the date collected.
