Kaitlin Reed Online Article

On January 30, 2018, the Trustee for the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust Agreement for State Beneficiaries, Wilmington Trust, N.A., notified the Florida Department of Environmental Protection that Florida has been designated as a beneficiary under the Trust Agreement.

Please visit the Department’s website https://floridadep.gov/air/air-director/content/volkswagen-settlement-florida-mitigation-fund for additional details regarding the Volkswagen Settlement – Florida Mitigation Fund.

In coming weeks, the Department will begin seeking public input into the development of Florida’s State Beneficiary Mitigation Plan through an online survey. Once this survey is available, an announcement will be distributed via e-mail to subscribers to the Department’s Volkswagen Diesel Mitigation Program mailing list.
