On 3 September 1997, the US Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, and the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) executed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to contribute funds for the Operation and Maintenance of both the Intracoastal Waterway (IWW) and the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AIWW). Since that date, FIND has provided over $70,000,000 for the O&M of the IWW and AIWW.

In 2023 O&M dredging was complete for the Palm Valley South Reach and in 2024 O&M dredging was complete for the Matanzas Reach of the IWW.
