Budget Information

The District’s fiscal year begins October 1st of every year through September 30th of the following year. The District’s contracts through a partnership with the State, however, begin July 1st of the start of that contract year through June 30th of the terminating contract year.

The District receives their budget through the Marion County Board of County Commissioners, and the County posts the District’s budgets and amendments on the Marion County Clerk of Courts’ site.

The Marion Soil & Water Conservation District’s revenue comes through donations, fundraising, grants, and FDACS administrative fees, when applicable. The District may also receive interest on their financial account(s) through their bank. In addition, the District sells plat books, soil survey CDs, and Farm of Environmental District signs, but these are a revenue loss, since their production cost is more than they receive in their net sales of these items.
