The Multiyear Implementation Plan was reviewed and accepted by the U.S. Department of Treasury. In July 2012, the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies of the Gulf States Act (RESTORE Act) established the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (Council) which is comprised of governors from the five affected Gulf States, the Secretaries from the U.S. Departments of the Interior, Commerce, Agriculture, and Homeland Security as well as the Secretary of the Army and the Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The RESTORE Act created five separate components for funding from the established Trust Fund. The Direct Component is a Treasury administered component, which makes up 35% of the amounts deposited into the trust fund available to four Gulf States, 23 Florida Counties, and 20 Louisiana Parishes.
