Prop 1E Round 1 Stormwater Flood Management Grant
Proposition 1E, the Disaster Preparedness and Flood Protection Bond Act, was passed by California voters in November 2006 and included funding for flood control structure, flood prevention, identification of risks and protection of flood corridors, and stormwater reuse. The Fresno Metropolitan Flood Control District (FMFCD) submitted a grant application titled “Fancher Creek Flood Control Improvement Project” to compete for funding in Round one of the Prop 1E Stormwater Flood Management grant. The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) awarded FMFCD $2,231,086.00 in grant funding with a local cost share of $2,382,648.00; the project’s total cost was $4,613,734.00. The grant agreement between FMFCD and DWR was executed on September 5, 2015 with all activities for the grant expected to conclude by summer 2018.
