About Florida Association of Special Districts

The mission of the Florida Association of Special Districts is to unify and strengthen special purpose government through education, the exchange of ideas, and active involvement in the legislative process.

There are over 1,800 Independent and Dependent Special Districts in the state of Florida, governed by more than 30 statutes, involving over 500 local governments. Special districts provide limited special purpose government on a local level, and whether your district specializes in fire control, libraries, ports and inlets, mosquitoes, water control, community development, roads, hospitals, or any other, you have the same need: to be accountable and accessible to the citizens you serve. In coordination with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Florida Association of Special Districts continues to provide current news and trends to special district employees and governing board officials.

National Special Districts Action Week

August 8 - 12, 2022

The National Special Districts Coalition (NSDC) will coordinate its first annual "National Special Districts Action Week" during the second week of August. The weeklong event will facilitate special districts' direct engagement with federal legislators during the congressional recess.

NSDC will equip special districts with advocacy resources and aid with coordination of meetings with congressional offices during the week of August 8-12. The Coalition's objective is to provide members with an opportunity to directly engage with their federal representatives to raise awareness of the essential services special districts provide to their constituents, advocate on special districts' priority federal issues, and discuss matters of local concern.
