The RESTORE Act of 2012 is an acronym for: Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act of 2012. The RESTORE Act established a Gulf Coast Restoration Trust Fund in the U.S. Treasury in which 80 percent of the Clean Water Act penalties from the Deep Horizon Oil Spill will be distributed to impacted areas for recovery.
Florida Association of Counties (FAC) is assisting in facilitating a Consortium of 23 Gulf Coast Counties for implementation of the RESTORE Act. For future updates and information about the RESTORE Act Consortium, please visit this web page. For details see links below.
