Integrated Regional Water Management Grant Programs
Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) is a collaborative effort to manage all aspects of water resources in a region. IRWM crosses jurisdictional, watershed, and political boundaries; involves multiple agencies, stakeholders, individuals, and groups; and attempts to address the issues and differing perspectives of all the entities involved through mutually beneficial solutions.
Our IRWM grant programs fund:
- Disadvantaged community involvement
- To determine which region you reside in or to find more information on a particular region, view the Water Management Planning Tool, an interactive map application that allows you to overlay numerous Geographic Information Systems (GIS) layers onto a map of California.
- The Disadvantaged Communities (DAC) Mapping Tool is a web-based application to assist local agencies and other interested parties in evaluating disadvantaged community (DAC) status throughout the State, using the definition provided by Proposition 84 IRWM Guidelines (2015).
