incurred to switch from an existing septic system and connect to central sewer.
Completed work must follow all applicable County codes and Florida Health Department (FDOH) 
requirements. Eligible costs include demolition of the septic tank, plumbing work from the house to 
the County right-of-way, and the connect of the on-site plumbing to the County’s wastewater 
collection infrastructure.
A pre-application must be submitted for each eligible home. To receive a copy of the application 
form, visit or email the 
Citrus County Water Resources Department at Pre-applications can be 
submitted online or delivered in-person or by mail to 3600 W Sovereign Path, Lecanto, FL 34461.
Eligible grant awards are on a first‐approved pre-application basis. The pre-application will be 
assigned a grant number for tracking purposes. If the grant application form is incomplete, the 
Water Resources Department will contact the applicant by the preferred method chosen by the 
applicant on the grant pre-application.
