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.
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.

Approximately $222 million in grant funding is being made available for implementation projects with approximately $23.6 million being made available for projects that provide benefits to Disadvantaged Communities.
