Grants for Flood Emergency Response Projects

DWR has made more funding available for the Flood Emergency Response Projects grants. The original amount of $5 million was increased to $10 million in early 2013, and another $5 million was added in mid-2013. $10 million in funding has been awarded for statewide projects and Delta communications equipment, while the remaining $5 million has been recommended for projects in the legal Delta. An additional $5 million is available for the second round of Statewide grants. This increase in funding represents DWR’s strong commitment to improving flood preparedness and response at the local level throughout the state.
