The Department of Water Resources (DWR) announced the opening of the public comment period for the Central Valley Tributary Program Draft Guidelines. The Draft Guidelines (PDF) can be accessed on the grant website.
This grant is designed to provide funding to local agencies for multi-benefit projects that reduce flood risk for urban communities, small communities and/or rural areas, and enhance ecosystems by improving fish and wildlife habitat and water quality downstream.
Following the review of public comments, DWR will release the Final Guidelines and solicit proposals in August 2018.
