Intergovernmental Coordination & Review (ICR) Process

Presidential Executive Order 12372, and Governor's Executive Order 95-359 established the ICR Process. Florida State Executive Order 83-150 designated Florida's eleven regional planning councils as "regional clearinghouses" giving the regional planning councils responsibility for coordinating local reviews of projects. The Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council coordinates its review with the State Clearinghouse located in the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

ICR reviews fall into two broad categories:

1. grant applications that request any federal funding
  2. projects that may impact the environment or local government jurisdiction

Examples for the second type of review (#2 above) are not limited but include the following:


environmental resource permits from the South Florida Water Management District


dredge and fill permit applications from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection



consistency projects from the Florida State Clearinghouse/Florida Coastal Management Program


transportation improvement programs and unified planning work programs submitted by Metropolitan Planning Organizations

Each application is reviewed for consistency with the Strategic Regional Policy Plan .

Additionally, projects in the second category above that require a federal permit may be reviewed for consistency with Florida's Coastal Management Program.

All applications should be sent to the Florida State Clearinghouse for review:
