Grants Review and Tracking System

GRanTS (Grants Review and Tracking System) is DWR’s web-based grant application and management tool. It can be used to:

  • Apply for grants and loans.
  • Manage contracts and track projects.
  • Submit electronic contract deliverables and invoices.


  • Open Solicitations:
    • Proposition 1 – Round 2 Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) Implementation Grant Program: This program will provide $193 million in funding to support IRWM projects across the state. To apply for grants through this program, 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.

    • Riverine Stewardship Program: This Program offers $15 Million in funding to plan and implement projects that will reduce flooding, improve water quality, and restore streams, creeks, and rivers to enhance the environment for fish, wildlife, and people. The funding will be delivered through the Riverine Stewardship Program and its two subprograms: the Urban Streams Restoration Program (USRP) and the San Joaquin Fish Population Enhancement Program. To apply for grants through these programs project proponents must submit a concept proposal and submit a full application if invited to do so by the RSP team. Funding is available on a first come, first serve basis until all funds have been expended.

    • 2022 Urban Community Drought Relief Program: This program provides close to $300 million dollars for Urban Communities to implement drought response projects.

  •  The Grants Review and Tracking System (GRanTS) is conducting an online survey this month. Staff is looking for feedback on the current system, and suggestions for potential improvements. GRanTS is used to apply for funding, manage projects, and submit electronic documents. In addition to the survey, you can email ideas to the GRanTS helpline.
