DAC Involvement Program

The Disadvantaged Community Involvement Program is designed to ensure the involvement of disadvantaged communities (DACs), economically distressed areas (EDAs), or underrepresented communities (collectively referred to as DACs) in IRWM planning efforts. The Proposition 1 2016 IRWM Guidelines established the general process, procedures, and criteria that DWR is using to implement the IRWM DAC Involvement Program.
