The Adoption Marketing Trust provides for marketing relating to adoption services. This program is funded through a $1 surcharge on pet licenses. The Victims Trust assists victims unable to pay their medical bills occurring as a result of animal attacks. Victims can be a person or an animal.

The General Trust consists of funds donated to the Animal Care and Adoption Division are used according to the donor’s wishes. If the donor does not designate a specific purpose then funds are used for general animal welfare.

The Bite Victim Trust assists those who are unable to pay their medical bills occurring as a result of animal attacks.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

The Florida Air Pollution Control Trust Fund (Air Trust), was established under the authority of Section 320.03(6) Florida Statutes (F.S.). The source of the funding is a $1.00 fee charged on every vehicle tag registration sold, transferred or replaced. For any county which has an approved local air pollution control program, as provided in Section 403.182 F.S., $0.75 of the fees from each registration sold in the county must be returned to that county and used only for air pollution control programs. If at the end of the fiscal year, the Air Trust fund has an unencumbered balance of more than 50% of the preceding year's allocation, the local program will receive $0.50 of every $1.00 collected.

The Air Quality program is a state approved local air quality program established pursuant to Section 403 F.S. and is responsible for protecting and enhancing air quality in Broward County by monitoring to assess air quality and to demonstrate compliance with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards; preventing and controlling emissions from commercial, industrial and motor vehicle air pollution through regulations and compliance; preventing air pollution through public education; preventing air pollution through long term air quality planning, greenhouse gas emissions inventories and reduction strategies; and promoting cleaner fuels and modes of transportation.

The Air Quality Program derives its legislative authority, mandates and funding from federal, state, and local authorities. In addition, the Air Quality Program has been delegated specific authority by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) to implement the air quality program in the County and is the recipient of several federal grants and state contracts with air quality protection objectives.

The Manatee Protection Fund supports aerial surveys to determine where manatees are in Broward County through periodic helicopter flights between Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties. Broward County encourages residents to watch for and report manatees to the Environmental Protection and Growth Management Department.
