The Delta Levees Program provides critical financial assistance for flood protection in the Delta. For more information visit the Delta Levees Maintenance Subventions page (rehabilitation and maintenance of levees) and the Delta Levees Special Projects page (levee improvements). The Delta Levees Program is guided by the California Water Action Plan and the Delta Plan.
The Delta Levees program also supports research into on-island subsidence reversal and carbon sequestration, and their effects on Delta flood protection, water conveyance, and environmental systems. In addition, the Delta Knowledge Improvement Program (DKIP) actively funds studies to fill in data gaps identified in the Delta Risk Management Strategy (DRMS) Project. Finally, the program supports projects that provide multiple benefits, such as the North Delta flood control and habitat restoration project.
