There is currently a grant program opportunity available under Proposition 1E, the Disaster Preparedness and Flood Prevention Bond Act of 2006. Projects which are designed to manage stormwater runoff to reduce damage caused by flooding may be eligible for grant assistance. The Department of Water Resources (DWR) is administering the disbursement of a portion of these grant funds.
Approximately $92 million in funding will be available for Stormwater Flood Management (SWFM) projects through this round of solicitation, with a maximum grant amount of $30 million per project.
Prospective applicants should read and become familiar with the 2012 IRWM Grant Program Guidelines - Propositions 84 and 1E, and the IRWM Grant Program - Proposal Solicitation Package for Round 2, Stormwater Management Grants. Close attention should be paid to the eligibility requirements, application instructions, and the review and scoring criteria. Both of these documents can be found on the Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) Grants webpage: www.water.ca.gov/irwm/grants
The solicitation for the SWFM grant is a one-step application process, with a due date of February 1, 2013. Information regarding applicant workshops is available on-line at the webpage referenced above.
Although our Division is not administering these grant awards, we encourage you to review the details related to the grant program outlined in the guidance documents and to work with DWR’s Integrated Regional Water Management staff to answer questions you may have.
If you need assistance, please contact Laura McLean (IRWM) at (916) 651-9212 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
