Long-Term Financing

June 3, 2013 12:27 pm — 12:27 pm

The In-Lieu Fee Mitigation Training Webinar Series was designed to help states, tribes, and local governments; conservation organizations; and other interested groups develop or refine rigorous in-lieu-fee programs that yield ecologically effective and sustainable compensatory mitigation. The series of webinars focuses on specific subjects, providing in-depth technical support on the topics of most interest to participants. The topics were chosen with the assistance of an Advisory Committee based on an assessment of the needs of states, tribes, and local governments and conservation organizations seeking approval for or overseeing the approval of statewide or regional in-lieu fee programs.

Long-Term Financing

Under the §404 compensatory mitigation regulations, mitigation providers are required to provide sufficient funding to meet the long-term management needs of the site. For this webinar, Tim Dicintio (National Fish and Wildlife Foundation) discussed the range of long-term financing mechanisms and their relative risks and benefits. Sherry Teresa (EcoLogical Solutions Consulting) discussed how to calculate long-term management costs. Finally, Hal Holland (Westervelt Ecological Services) provided a concrete example of the cost calculation for an actual mitigation project.
