County Drought Resilience Planning Assistance Program

Senate Bill (SB) 552 requires all counties to improve drought and water shortage preparedness for state small water systems and domestic wells within a county’s jurisdiction by establishing a standing Drought and Water Shortage Task Force (Task Force) and developing a County Drought Resilience Plan (County DRP). 

Under the County Drought Resilience Planning Assistance Program, counties can request up to $125,000 in financial assistance (application period has closed) or direct technical assistance to support their planning efforts. All counties in California, and only counties, are eligible to apply for this specific financial assistance (application period has closed) or direct technical assistance. See below for which counties are receiving assistance and more information resources offered to counties to jump start their drought resilience planning for domestic wells and state small systems.
