Proposition 1

Proposition 1 Water Bond 2014 logoOn November 4, 2014, California voters approved Proposition 1, the Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014. Proposition 1 authorized $510 million in Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) funding. Funds are allocated to 12 hydrologic region-based Funding Areas.

 

The Proposition 1 IRWM Grant Program, administered by DWR, provides funding for projects that help meet the long-term water needs of the state, including:

  • Assisting water infrastructure systems adapt to climate change;
  • Providing incentives throughout each watershed to collaborate in managing the region's water resources and setting regional priorities for water infrastructure; and
  • Improving regional water self-reliance, while reducing reliance on Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

IRWM Grant Program Guidelines

The 2016 IRWM Grant Program Guidelines are comprised of two volumes. Volume 1 contains the general process, procedures, and criteria that DWR will use to implement the Proposition 1 IRWM Grant Program, which includes the IRWM Planning and Disadvantaged Community Involvement Grant Programs. Volume 2 contains the IRWM Plan Standards and related guidance, and the region acceptance and plan review procedures.

 

The 2019 IRWM Grant Program Guidelines contain the general process, procedures, and criteria that DWR will use to implement the Proposition 1 IRWM Grant Program, which includes the IRWM Implementation Grant Program and any future grant programs pending another update to the guidelines.
