Draft Proposal Solicitation Package for Groundwater Sustainability Plans and Projects

DWR has released the Draft Proposal Solicitation Package (PSP) for Groundwater Sustainability Plans (GSPs) and Projects. DWR is administering the Sustainable Groundwater Planning Grant Program, using funds authorized by Proposition 1, to encourage sustainable management of groundwater resources that support Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). This PSP is making a total of approximately $86.3 million available, with at least $10 million made available to projects that serve Severely Disadvantaged Communities (SDACs) and the remaining amount for planning, development, or preparation of GSPs. Eligible projects for this PSP must address high and medium priority basins as identified in DWR Bulletin 118 or a non-adjudicated portion of one of these basins.

The draft PSP can be found at the following link:
