Welcome! Everglades National Park manages an In-Lieu Fee and Mitigation Bank that can provide compensatory mitigation credits to the public. If you are in the process of obtaining one or more regulatory permits due to unavoidable impacts to wetlands as a result of your development activities, you are in the right place. This site provides information on how to complete an application for and reserve Palustrine Freshwater Emergent mitigation credits.
Credit Availability Status:
The current cost of mitigation at the Hole in the Donut is $78,000 per 1 UMAM credit.
Currently, the HID does not have credits available to meet your mitigation requirements. We are working to have additional credits released to the HID project. At this time, we do not have a date identified for the next credit release lottery.
