DWR Releases Final 2015 Agricultural Water Use Efficiency Grant PSP & Guidelines

DWR has released the final versions of the 2015 Agricultural Water Use Efficiency Grant Program Guidelines and Proposal Solicitation Package. These newly released documents as well as other information about the Agricultural Water Use Efficiency Grant Program can be found at: http://www.water.ca.gov/wuegrants/SolicitationsProp1AG.cfm.

In November 2014, California voters passed Proposition 1, the Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014. Chapter 7 of Proposition 1 provides funding to improve regional water self-reliance security and adapt to climate change effects on water supply. Specifically, Proposition 1 authorizes $30 million in funding for agricultural water management plans and agricultural water use efficiency projects and programs. Subsequent to Proposition 1, Governor Brown issued Executive Order B-29-15 on April 1, 2015 in response to the continued drought state of emergency and directs DWR to give priority in grant funding to agricultural water suppliers that supply water to 10,000 to 25,000 acres of land for development and implementation of Agricultural Water Management Plans.

A workshop will be held to provide potential grant applicants with assistance on preparing grant applications.
