Implementation Grant Program
The IRWM Implementation Grant Program provides funding for implementation projects that meet the intent of Proposition 1, Chapter 7. DWR plans to award grants on a competitive basis in at least two funding rounds.
In order to apply for grants from this solicitation, project proponents must coordinate through their established IRWM Regional Water Management Group, and the Regional Group must in turn coordinate with other groups within the Proposition 1 IRWM Funding Area.
On October 5, 2018 DWR released the 2018 Proposition 1 - Round 1 IRWM Implementation Grant Draft Proposal Solicitation Package and Draft 2018 Guidelines for public review. DWR is proposing that approximately $194 million be made available for implementation projects with approximately $18 million designated for projects that provide benefits to Disadvantaged Communities. DWR encourages public comment on the draft solicitation package documents found below.
*As of November 13, 2018 DWR has extended the Public Comment Period to Friday, December 14, 2018 at 5 p.m.
During the public comment period, each Funding Area will have the opportunity to provide feedback to DWR regarding how much funding should be made available during Round 1, as well as other solicitation process details. The feedback related to funding amounts should be coordinated and agreed upon amongst all IRWM regions, disadvantaged communities, tribes, and other interested parties within each Funding Area. Please see the solicitation package cover letter under "Key Documents" for more information.
