Some projects have been recommended for funding on a conditional basis; the applicants should refer to the embedded notes as well as the Round 1 Implementation Grant Proposal Solicitation Package regarding additional information required to be submitted. The required information to address the noted conditions must be received no later than Tuesday, May 26, by 5:00pm. Applicants should contact DWR if additional time is needed for the response, due to the COVID-19 public health emergency; however, such delays will subsequently delay the final funding awards.

These funding recommendations are subject to public review for 21 calendars days (time frame extended due to the health emergency), through Friday May 15, 2020.
